At Congregation Beit T'Shuvah, our unique and diverse members are our greatest asset
. We are committed to creating a spiritual community in which anyone is welcome and everyone matters. In order to give every individual who is interested in joining our congregation the opportunity to do so, we have created a membership structure that ensures that membership is within everyone's reach.
Beginning this year, each member can determine his or her own membership dues to Congregation Beit T'Shuvah.
In Exodus 25:1-2, God spoke to Moses, saying: "Tell the Israelite people to bring Me gifts (T'rumah); you shall accept gifts for Me from every person whose heart is so moved.
" Our new membership program is therefore aptly called T'rumah, and simply requests offerings made from the heart
. We ask each member to make a T'rumah commitment that is comfortable for each individual and family. Our recommended contribution of $450 per household does much to defray our temple's annual operating costs. Whatever you can afford today, whatever gift your heart moves you to make, allows Beit T'Shuvah to exist as a sanctuary for all.
Our request is simple-please join Congregation Beit T'Shuvah.
Giving what you can enables our community to grow and remain a spiritual home for anyone who chooses to belong. No matter what you are able to share as your T'rumah commitment, access to clergy, assistance with life cycle events, adult learning classes, and High Holiday tickets are included for all members.
We thank you for your continued generosity and support.
"And let them make Me a Sanctuary, that I may dwell among them."
"V'Asu Li Mikdash, V'Shachanti B'tocham"
- Exodus, 25:8
Membership at Congregation Beit T'Shuvah is not bound by geography. From wherever you are, it makes a personal statement:
I am helping to build a holy, safe, and open space for God and all people to dwell together.
As a benefit to our out-of-town members, live streaming of services is available on High Holidays. Not to mention you'll have a community waiting for you whenever you visit L.A.!
Please select one of the following commitment levels for 2015-2016 membership:
For membership commitments of $450 and over you will receive 4 High Holiday Tickets.
