Dear Shul Member
Greetings and Blessings:

Tishrei is nearly here, and the Shul needs your help.  Boruch Hashem, our shul continues to grow in membership and services to the community, and is approaching completion of a massive remodeling project of the entire facility.  The cost of running the Shul is enormous and has grown exponentially over the past few years.  Funds collected for membership and Yom Tov seats provide the majority of the money required to operate the shul.  Shul Membership dues and Yom Tov seats are therefore the most important contributions that you can make to keep the shul running.

Our shul has four minyonim on Shabbos, including Kol Yaakov Yehuda during the school year.  We have a full range of Shabbos programs for the kids.  We also have five official weekday shacharis minyonim with more in the later morning.   Hundreds of men use our shul on a daily basis for mincha and maariv.  Men and women from throughout Southern California participate in our shul sponsored shiurim and farbrengens.  Congregation Levi Yitzchok is a destination shul for out of towners visiting the area and for anyone that wants to experience our special environment.

Keeping the mortgage current, utilities paid and managing the other expenses that go into operating our shul is critical.  Our expenses for security guards and other security related items have leaped over the past year as well.  The Shul needs your participation and contributions to survive.  The cost of membership is being held at last year’s rate, and the Yom Tov seat fee schedule remains unchanged.

  • Family Membership - $1080
  • Single Membership - $500
  • Associate Membership - $500
  • Yom Tov Seats/Family - $300 member/$500 non-member
  • Yom Tov Seats/Single - $100 member/$250 non-member

We encourage you to submit your payments to the shul online by credit card or e-check at  When paying online, you can easily set up a recurring monthly payment.  We thank the many members that have committed to paying $100 per month or more, and hope that you consider a monthly contribution that exceeds the minimum membership.  Of course, full membership payment in advance is also welcome. If you are paying by check, please make sure that it is clearly identified as membership.  Checks can be given to Levi Raichik, Leib Lerner, or David Kaufman.  Checks can also be left in the metal pushkas just inside the shul entrances in both the main shul and the kolel.

A limited number of lockers are available to members.  The annual fee for lockers is $180 and lockers that are not paid for will be released to members that have signed up on the waiting list on a first-come/first-served basis.

Wishing you a kesiva v’chasima tovah,
Members of the Volunteer Shul Operating Committee
