Membership Criteria:

Explanation of Fees:

Membership Fee: This portion of your contribution goes directly to allowing Temple Shalom to continue to operate and supporting programs for our community at temple.  We offer discounted rates for first time members and students.  If you require financial assistance, please contact Temple President Alysse Hastie at president@templeshalom.ca so that we can accommodate your need and process your membership.

ARZA Canada Membership: ARZA Canada is an affiliate of the Union for Reform Judaism and its Canadian Councel which connects reform communities throughout Canada, fosters connections with and strengthens our ties to the Reform Movement in Israel, and works to realize the vision of Reform Zionism.  For more information, please visit https://www.arzacanada.org.

URJ Dues: The Union of Reform Judaism (formerly the Union of American Hebrew Congregations) strengthens congregations and communities that connect people to Jewish life.  As a reform congregation, we are members of the URJ and receive resources and support from them.  For more information, please visit https://urj.org.

Temple Security for High Holy Days: This portion of your contribution goes towards ensuring that measures are taken to ensure everyone’s safety during High Holy Day services.

Donation to the Prayer Book Fund: The prayer book fund allows us to purchase Shabbat prayer books, Machzorim, Chumashim keep our Torah scrolls in good repair, and more.  Our next purchase from this fund will be to replace our aging Chumashim so that there will be enough copies in good repair for use during Shabbat Services.

Additional contribution to subsidize those unable to pay: Financial hardship should not be a barrier to full participation in Jewish and Temple life.  We recognize that the pandemic has caused an increased burden on many families within our community, so we ask that you consider helping to subsidize another person’s membership if your are financially able to do so.
