MCJC operates on the “fair share” concept, dividing the expenses of our rabbi, our programs, and our shul by the number of households in our small community. If every household were able to contribute their fair share, we would be able to cover our expenses. But not every household can do this, so when you give at the Regular Member level or above, you are contributing a portion for those unable to do so, an act of tzedaka.
Below, you will find a range of suggested contributions. Make your pledge and send it in today, and feel free to let us know when you want a reminder.
Regular Contributing Membership $650 -- $2000.
Fair Share $ 500.
Limited Income Contributing Membership $295 -- $ 600
Family with Young Children Contributing Membership $295 – $ 600
Megillah only $ 36 (annually)
