Membership at Congregation Hakafa
We are happy you are considering membership at Hakafa and look forward to the opportunity to welcome you into our encirclement.
Dues and Tuition
Our annual membership dues are set at a standard level that all financially able members are expected to pay. For fiscal 2018-2019, the standard dues amount is $2,525 and Religious and Hebrew School tuitions are $425 each. Hakafa’s dues and school fees are calculated to cover the operating budget of the congregation, because we do not solicit donations or charge for congregation events, such as the High Holidays.

If you pledge at or above the standard amount and will not pay in full at this time, please enclose your initial payment and indicate your proposed payment schedule on the form. If you are unable to pledge the standard amount, please contact our dues treasurer, Heather Harris, to determine an adjusted pledge amount.
In order to enroll in Religious/Hebrew School and/or receive High Holiday tickets, all dues pledges must be made at the time of membership. All commitments must be paid in full by May 1, 2019. Please provide separate checks (we do not accept credit cards) for dues and Religious School fees. Your prompt payment helps us to lower our administrative and mailing expenses.
Volunteering at Hakafa
Our congregation prides itself on the active participation of our membership in volunteering for our many activities. Please take the time to look over the many volunteer opportunities, and sign-up to help out the Hakafa community and the greater community at large. This is an important element of our congregational life, and it’s a great way to meet other members and to get involved!
