Terumah/Dues Pledge & Payment Plans

“Take from among you a gift (terumah) for Adonai; everyone whose heart so moves him shall bring them.” Exodus 35:5

Thank you for your pledge. (Confused? Click here to learn more about Terumah.)

Recommended Terumah is $2700 per household for the fiscal year 2023-2024. If you can contribute at this level or higher, please share your blessings to help us reach a balanced budget for the coming year. If you need to give less, please do so at a level that prioritizes Temple Beth-El so that we can remain financially stable and continue to serve our community. We are particularly grateful to those who are able to join our Benefactor Circle by offering $3600 or more in Terumah this year.

Every pledge at every level is deeply appreciated.

To provide for our community’s safety, we must also ask for a security surcharge of $75/family per year. Protecting our loved ones comes first.

How To Use This Form

Use this form to:

  • Make your pledge
  • Choose your payment plan
  • Sign up for automatically recurring/renewing credit/debit card payments
  • Make your first payment

You must renew your membership on this page each year if you do not choose one of the auto-renew credit/debit card options below. We hate dropping members from our rosters, but that is what happens when you don’t renew. Please don’t let this happen; we don’t want anyone to fall through the cracks. We value having you as part of Temple Beth-El! This renewal pledge form is due by June 30 (in advance of the new fiscal year) for all members who decline auto-renew option via debit/credit card.

Setting up a recurring credit card payment renews your membership automatically. Otherwise you must complete this form to renew your membership each June.

**IMPORTANT: If would like to change the automatic charges to your credit/debit card, please click here* and make a new pledge.  Your new pledge will replace the old one.

Of course, manual (non-automatic) payment plans and renewal pledges are also possible. We just try to make it as easy for you as possible to stay connected.
