Categories of Membership 2013 – 2014
(Our budget year is September to September)
A new benefit of membership is being offered for every membership category. On our new website is a category called “Mitzvah and Meaning.” Each member is welcome to send questions about Jewish practice to Rabbi Deb and she will answer them on the website. Additionally, if you would like to publish something for “Mitzvah and Meaning” that you have written, just forward it to the rabbi for inclusion. Another option that is available to you is to write a book review as long as the book is Jewishly related.
