Synagogue LEAP Series

Dues Structures That Represent Your Community
November 18, 2021 | 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. | with Caroline Dorn and Ellie Goldman


Finding the right dues model for your congregation is one of the central challenges of today's synagogue. Our financial systems must reflect Jewish values and assist in growing congregational communities, while covering expenses and planning for strong futures.

In this session we will explore concrete ways to determine and evaluate membership models in context to your community’s goals, thoughtful transition planning, and effective ways to communicate changes to your members and the community. Together we will discuss the challenges of traditional synagogue models and opportunities and approach change with optimism and creativity.

Jewish Nonprofit Professionals Communities of Practice


Building on the success of our convenings for Jewish nonprofit professionals that we launched last year for development professionals and CEOs, we are expanding to the areas of finance and human resources. These convenings provide opportunities for professionals to gather (virtually) and discuss timely topics, share knowledge, seek advice, and build relationships with colleagues in related professional areas.

We encourage you to invite your colleagues to join, and welcome your participation to help shape these groups, suggest discussion topics, and ask questions.

If you have questions or want to offer input into the design of these or other convenings of Jewish nonprofit professionals, please contact Kimberlee Schumacher, VP of Partnerships & Services, at kimberlees@cjp.org.
