MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION

We are honored that you have chosen Congregation Beth Shalom of The Woodlands (CBSW) as your spiritual home. We are committed to creating a vibrant congregation and engaging our membership.

 

As a non-profit organization, CBSW is supported by the collective strength of our members. The Board of Trustees and the CBSW staff are committed to continued excellence in creating a vibrant congregation, engaging members of all ages and backgrounds.

 

Our sustaining gifting level has remained the same for many years. A gift of a pledge beyond the sustaining level is critical for several reasons.

 

Many members, while desiring to pledge at the sustaining level, are not currently in a financial position to do so. Your additional support enables CBSW to fulfill its mission by extending membership to those in need.

 

Annual gifting currently provides 70% of the income necessary to cover expenses.

 

Your additional support improves our ability to offer new and innovative programs.

 

The tradition at CBSW encourages member families that cannot gift at the sustaining level to commit an amount that approximates 2% of gross family income. Every member family must judge its circumstances while remembering that we all fulfill our mission as a House of Prayer, a House of Study and a House of Assembly.

 

As Jews and members of CBSW we all have an obligation to support congregaional activities - those we ue and those that serve others.

 

We recognize that not every member family can commit at the sustaining level. If you cannot make an annual commitment at or above the sustaining level, please contact  our Treasurer, Kaye Brouse for a confidential discussion of your financial commitment to CBSW.

 

CBSW exists today because previous generations recognized and fulfilled their responsibility toward our preservation. When you support CBSW, your commitment helps assure future generations that CBSW will be here to serve the Jewish community. From generation to generation, it our our responsibility and our legacy to share.
