  7. Preparing for a Rabbinic Sabbatical From the Perspective of the Congregational Leadership

    In Leviticus 25:2-4 we learn:

    “When you enter the land that I assign to you, the land shall observe a Sabbath of the Lord. Six years you may sow your field and six years you may prune your vineyard and gather in the yield. But in the seventh year the land shall have a Sabbath of complete rest, a Sabbath of the Lord.”

  8. Dues and Financial Policy: Our Tax for Jewish Citizenship

    Early Models

    Since developing as a people after the exodus from Egypt, the most common method of raising funds in Jewish community has been through taxation (see Exodus 30 on the half-shekel, Exodus 35 on free-will offerings, Leviticus 19 and Deuteronomy 14, 24, and 26 on tithing). This is by no means unique to the Jewish people.

  10. Synagogue Membership As a Requirement For Religious School Enrollment

    This listserv thread from November 2001 still contains valuable discussion on congregational policy. 


    Jeff Steinberg, Toronto, Ontario

    I sit on our Hebrew school committee, which is currently reviewing a policy of the congregation. The policy requires congregational membership after one year's enrollment in the school. The school, in effect, serves a membership gathering function.
