The New Shul

FAQs / How many members do you have?

Before we can answer that question, we have to explain how we count.  Most synagogues count you as a member if you pay dues.  But we are committed to the idea that membership in a spiritual community should not be for sale, and so we don’t put a price tag on it.  Instead we count you as a member if you consider yourself part of the community and tell us so.  That means sharing responsibility, in your own way, for strengthening the shul by participating, volunteering, and making a financial contribution of your own choosing.  Okay — now we can answer the question.  We have about 140 families that define themselves as members of the shul.
