Join Congregation Bet Haverim

We welcome the full range of diverse Jewish and interfaith families.

A House of Friends, A Community Open to All

We include single parents, singles, multi-cultural families, multi-racial families, LGBTQIA people, people of all ages, people with special needs.

Members Are Partners

Being a partner in our sacred community delivers both privileges and responsibilities that elevate the experience above simple membership.  While members expect service in exchange for payment, such as at a gym or as part of a club or service program, partners play an active role in shaping and sustaining their synagogue community.

As a Bet Haverim partner, your gifts of both time and treasure ensure the opportunity for Jewish worship, education and friendships in Yolo County. By being an active partner in the community, you are able to play a direct role in creating a Jewish life that is personally meaningful and fulfilling to you.

We're all in this together

We’ve calculated the total amount of partnership contribution we need to “keep the lights on” at CBH over this next year, and then divided that amount by the expected number of partner households. To pay our budgeted operating expenses for this coming year, total partnership contributions for the year will need to average $2,200 per partner household.

However, it is also a core principle of CBH that no one who wants to join our community will be denied an opportunity to do so, based on financial limitations. Therefore, to the extent you are able to contribute an amount exceeding that average contribution amount, you will not only be doing a mitzvah benefitting a fellow partner, but will also be helping CBH achieve the financial foundation needed to provide a home for all who wish to share in Jewish life as part of our community.

Please read this letter from our Co-Presidents to Partners about pledges and our introductory Partnership offer.

Partnership Form

Partnership Pledges are due this year on July 31 for continuing partners, however, new partners are welcome at any time and may pro-rate their pledge commitment. In addition to an annual pledge, all partnership units also contribute a $250 “L’Dor v’Dor” maintenance fee each year to provide for the upkeep and enhancement of our synagogue campus.

The Executive Director welcomes questions about Bet Haverim partnership at director@bethaverim.org, or 530-758-0842.
