2019 B'nai Havurah Membership Renewal or New Member

Note to seekers of a liberal Jewish community:  If you want to learn more about our awesome community, please contact Becky Epstein, Executive Director, at 303-388-4441 or exec@bnaihavurah.org. If you are looking for a warm, welcoming, and inclusive spiritual home committed to Social Justice, you have found your community! We turn no one away due to financial hardship.

Thank you for choosing B’nai Havurah as your Reconstructionist Jewish community and for your membership!

Your financial support is critical to our success and makes it possible for B’nai Havurah to create a welcoming community that strengthens our Jewish identity and allows us to be part of something larger than ourselves.

In 2019, our expenses will total about $545,000. The operational expenses of a mid-sized congregation such as ours include payroll as our most significant expense, followed by building and grounds maintenance. Dues cover less than half our costs—about $250,000. We cover the rest with The Other Half (our annual campaign), additional fundraising events, facility rentals, and investments.

SOCIAL JUSTICE AT B'NAI HAVURAH - YOUR CHAI ($18 CONTRIBUTION):

Mordecai Kaplan, a founder of Reconstructionist Judaism, believed that social justice is at the heart of Jewish practice. Two ways B’nai Havurah does that is through our Tikkun Olam Committee and our Social Justice Positioning Policy/Program.

     Your $9 Tikkun Olam contribution for each family member over 13 supports the mission of non-profit organizations who make the world a better place. In 2018, more than 18 grants were awarded to worthy organizations.

     Your $9 Social Justice contribution for each family member over 13 supports Positioning B'nai, our social justice policy. We have joined two high impact social action coalitions: Colorado Industrial Areas Foundation and Faith Communities United Against Gun Violence. Both organizations organize and advocate within our diverse greater community.
