Why Become a Member of Chadeish Yameinu


It’s like being a citizen of the community, rather than a visitor. 

Being a member of CY means you:


  • Support the ongoing existence of a vibrant, spiritual community that is available for everyone to plug into in his or her own way.

  • Make it possible to have our rabbi by helping raise the funds (through your dues) to pay him.

  • Are eligible to enroll your children in our school, bar/bat mitzvah program and youth group.

  • Have access to rabbinical advice and counseling.

  • Get free or lower admission to events.

  • Get our weekly newsletter, the Aleph Branch.

  • Have access to posting emails to the community listserv instead of read-only status.

  • Automatically become a member of ALEPH, the Alliance for Jewish Renewal.

  • Can participate in decision-making, join a committee or the Board of Directors.

  • Pay lower fees for lifecycle events.

  • Have access to our rabbi for mentoring in spiritual leadership skills and building your Jewish knowledge.

  • Help us provide free regular Shabbat services and free drop-in adult education classes.

  • Keep Jewish renewal alive in Santa Cruz for ourselves and our children.
