Annual Commitment 

Congregation Shalom uses a fair share schedule to determine the cost of membership for each household. The Fair Share system relies on each member to give according to his/her financial ability. That is the essence of tzedakah—justice and righteousness—as our tradition teaches it. After reviewing other methods for determining annual commitment, we continue to believe that the “fair share” method is the best approach for our congregation. Members are asked to review their placement each year.
