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 $425, we would be able to cover our expenses. But not every household can do this, so when you give at the Regular Member level, beginning at $575, 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, or let us know when you want a reminder. This will save us the expense of repeated letters, calls, time and energy.
Regular Contributing Membership $575 -- $1800
Fair Share $ 425
Limited Income Contributing Membership $280 -- $ 500
Family with Young Children Contributing Membership $200 – $ 400
Megillah only $ 25 (annually)
