Many new things are happening at JCCO Shalom Bayit. 2019/2020 will be the first year celebrating our recent affiliation with Reconstructing Judaism (RJ). Like our synagogue’s unique historical commitment to being an all-inclusive community that welcomes newcomers, interfaith families, and Jews by choice, we find the Reconstructionist approach to Judaism, and life, closely matches our community’s moral fiber. With its deep consideration of Judaism’s past and a passion to relate it to the present, this affiliation was a natural fit for Shalom Bayit. With an official “affiliation”, we hope to attract newcomers to Central Oregon as well as appeal to those who are already here but have not been members of the local Jewish community, or, who were once, but have dropped away.
That said – we cannot begin to grow without your help. As “they” say – time, treasure, talent. We need it all. We need you all! We welcome people of all financial means. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. We have members of all ages and backgrounds. So, as we begin this new year, a year of new beginnings, we hope that you will join us. We have suggested amounts on the form but all contributions are valued. If you feel you can give more, we would be ever grateful. Giving less is OK, too. Only you know how much works with your budget.
Please print and fill in the Membership Pledge above, indicating the annual amount and your preferred payment schedule. You may enclose a check, made payable to JCCO Shalom Bayit or, to pay by credit card, visit http://jccobend.org/support-shalom-bayit/ — once you click through, this will be handled by a secure site. If you choose to pay later, we will invoice you accordingly. Please mail the form back or, if you prefer, scan it and email it back, per the info at the bottom of the form.
