Membership

Interested in joining the Temple as a member?

Temple Sholom welcomes all to attend services (including the High Holidays) and other Temple events without formal membership.  But of course, we would also be delighted to have you as a member; the health of our congregation relies on our membership. Should you wish to join, here's how it works:  Annual contributions range vary according to what members feel they can pay.  Members are asked to contribute 1% - 1.5% of their household's gross annual income. Rather than making inquiries about members' income, we prefer that you make the judgment yourself. As a congregation we are committed to welcoming all who wish to join our community, regardless of financial means, so if a contribution in this range would be a hardship to you, just pledge what you can. 

To submit an annual contribution, one sends a check (made out to Temple Sholom and marked "annual contribution") to our treasurer at: Temple Sholom, P.O. Box 501, Galesburg, IL 61402-0501. Some members pay in full early in the fall; others prefer to pay in monthly or quarterly installments.
