What is a Community Engagement Commitment?
It is the old membership dues renewal form. While the language may be initially puzzling, the intent is to help everyone rethink how we view your relationship with the congregation. 

In the old model, membership was viewed as a transaction where you paid dues and received a service, like joining a gym or a country club. In the new model, we want the experience to be relational where you engage with others and form meaningful relationships. Engaging with your Jewish community is the driver for belonging, not simply evaluating what services I will receive in exchange for paying dues. The true value is engaging with your community.

Mike Shapiro, President
