Temple Beth Shalom funds our operations through annual shared member commitments, or SMC. The annual SMC is based on the temple’s expenses divided by the number of member family units. We are an inclusive community, and no one is denied membership because of financial circumstances. Congregants may also commit to the temple at a higher level. The annual SMC form describes these levels, as well as convenient payment options.
Providing innovative, high quality Jewish education for our children is a covenant shared by the entire congregation. Through SMC, the temple covers 70% of the cost associated with both Religious and Hebrew School offset by a modest fee paid by families of enrolled children. B’nai mitzvah families also pay a small fee during their child’s 6th grade year.
