Dear Shul Member

Greetings and Blessings:

Tishrei is now less than two weeks away. Boruch Hashem, our shul continues to grow in membership and services to the community. The cost of running the Shul is enormous. Funds collected for membership and Yom Tov tickets provide the majority of the money required to operate the shul. Shul Membership dues and Yom Tov Tickets are therefore the most important contributions that you can make to keep the shul running.

Our shul is famous for its Shabbos Kiddush, chesed programs and other activities. Those items are self-funding and separate from the Shul operating budget. Keeping the mortgage current, utilities paid and managing the other expenses that go into operating our shul is up to us, the members. The Shul needs everyone’s participation and contributions to thrive. For the upcoming year 5776, the membership and Yom Tov ticket schedule remains unchanged:

Family Membership $770
Single Membership $360
Associate Membership $360
Yom Tov Tickets/Family $300 member/$500 non-member
Yom Tov Tickets/Single $100 member/$250 non-member

Of course, no one is turned away for Yom Tov but reserved seats will only be available if you are a member in good standing or have paid the non-member ticket fee. In order to be a member in good standing, you must be a paying member before Tishrei. The best and easiest way to pay membership is to set up recurring monthly payments via our website. Many of you have already taken advantage of the monthly payments ($65 per month for membership, $90 per month including tickets). We also thank all of you that are paying a nice round $100. If you feel that your current circumstances make such payments difficult, please contact any of the Gabboim to arrange an alternate recurring payment so that you will be counted as a member in good standing.

Payments can be made online by clicking here, by giving a check to either Levi Raichik, David Kaufman or Leib Lerner, leaving a check in the metal pushka located in the back of the Shul, or mailing a check to the shul’s PO Box - 481255 Los Angeles, CA 90048. If paying by check please make sure to indicate the purpose of the payment on the check. While most find that paying automatically on a monthly basis is easiest, full payment in advance is always welcome.

We respectfully ask that you take care of your membership and tickets right away so that you will get seating priority.

In addition, please go to ASAP to let us know how many seats you need. Please make sure to specify how many seats you need in each section. 

If you have any questions regarding membership, tickets or your current membership status, please contact us through [email protected] or speak to us in shul. We are happy to answer all of your questions and gladly encourage your suggestions and participation in helping to operate the shul.

Wishing you a kesiva v’chasima tovah, 
The Gabboim
