DUES! DUES! DUES! BIG NEWS! ABOUT DUES! MUST READ! The opportunity we have all been expecting has arrived: The chance to heighten our support for the Temple of Israel. The board has approved a long expected dues increase for the coming fiscal year, which will run from July of 2012 through June of 2013. The annual increases will be small, ranging from $50 to $150 per year, depending on membership category. This rise accompanies the many exciting things we are doing here at the Temple of Israel, including a wonderful new Rabbi, a new school and office building, growing school enrollment, growing membership, more programs and activities, and a beautifully renovated sanctuary, to hit on some of the highlights. There have been no dues changes for five years now in deference to the poor economy, but we are emerging stronger and healthier, with an eye to the future. The Temple of Israel cannot thank everyone enough for their support, not only financial, but spiritual and emotional as well. Without all of you, none of this would be possible. As always, those in situations of financial hardship will never be turned away. Please contact the treasurer, Josh Vogel at 395-8398, if you need to discuss your personal situation. All discussions are confidential between the treasurer and the bookkeeper.
