Membership

Come get to know us! So you’ve read all about our community on our webpage, and now you’re ready to become a member… right?  Don't stop at your screen; connect with us. Engage with us. Let's chat, let's share experiences, and let's get to know each other better. The tapestry of our community is woven with unique stories and incredible individuals, and we'd love for you to be a part of it.
Dive deeper into CBH by attending our community events and immersing yourself in our services. Our doors are always open, even during our High Holy Days services. If you're curious about our Community School, reach out to our office to schedule a visit on a Sunday morning during the academic year. There is no obligation: your little ones can embark on their educational journey with our Community School, even without formal membership in the Synagogue.


So, are you ready to not just read about our community, but to live it? Come, be a part of the vibrant community that is Congregation Bet Haverim.  You belong.

And now, the part about dues.
 

Dues paid by CBH members provide the financial foundation for our congregational life, represent the largest portion of our community budget, and allow our staff to focus on the spiritual life of the community rather than on fundraising. Please take into account the information below, review your current capacity to contribute, and enter your financial commitment for this year.

• Our basic operating expense divided evenly across all households of any size is approximately $2100. 51% of our households consist of two adult members, 49% of one adult member and just over 50% have children.

• Our membership dues requirement is built upon a “fair share” dues schedule, wherein we ask each household to contribute 2.5-3.5% of total adjusted gross income. Please continue to use this percentage as a starting point in thinking about what you can contribute. This system has allowed us to offer membership benefits to people in a diverse set of financial situations. 

• Associate member dues, for those living outside the Atlanta Metro area OR for those who belong to another synagogue, is $450 annually.

• Student Membership – Dues for full time students is $216 ($18/month)

All Households will be charged $180 security fee annually to pay for security at CBH and CBHCS

We understand that certain circumstances make it difficult or impossible to contribute 2.5-3.5% of income, while other circumstances may allow a larger contribution in a given year. We ask all members to give an amount that is significant to their household and represents a commitment to the community.
