Shalom Temple Menorah Members and Friends,
As the membership year of 5775 begins to come to a close, we want to thank you for being part of our Temple Menorah family and supporting your community.
In the Torah portion B'midbar that we will read Saturday, May 23th, we will hear of how Moses was commanded to take a census of the Israelites in the month after the first anniversary of Passover. This is one of the earliest times that individuals were asked to stand up and be counted - spiritually as well as physically -- as part of the Jewish People.
This may be why, in commemoration of this historic event, Temples all over the world start their membership renewal drives right about now, in this month after Passover. To do our part to uphold tradition, we have just mailed your 5776 Membership Preview to you.
Last year, we did our best to simplify the renewal materials for you to fill out. This year, we went one step better: we did away with them completely. After all, if you're part of the family, you shouldn't need to reapply every year. The only paperwork that you need to fill out is a check to take advantage of the very special offer outlined below.
Please be on the lookout for your 5776 Preview in the mail and take this opportunity to stand up and be counted for Temple Menorah.
Help our cash flow, and we'll help yours! This year, we are offering you an optional one-time discount on all Temple Menorah 5776 (2015-2016) balances if you pay your entire Annual Total amount shown on your 5776 Preview statement (including dues, fees and Religious School registration) by the dates below. Please note that all related funds must be received by the Temple by the following to be eligible for the discount.
|If you pay in full by:
||Your discount is:
|1. Friday, May 22, 2015
|2. Friday, June 12, 2015
As in years past, financial assistance for Membership Dues is available by application. If needed, please use the form in your Preview to apply for 5776 by June 15, even if you are receiving assistance in the current 5775 year. There is a limited budget for assistance and we want to be fair to everyone. (Requests received after June 15 will be considered on a funds-available basis only.)
Important: Senior Members do not have to re-apply for financial assistance. Those currently receiving assistance will receive the same level next year.
Again, thank you for supporting our Temple community. If you have any questions or need more information, please do not hesitate to call me.
