Dear Fellow Congregants,
We extend warm greetings to you, our members, for the coming 2022-2023 year. We are pleased to announce that we have opened our Synagogue building to Shabbat Services, committee meetings and events. We are moving toward the end of the social isolation we have all experienced due to the COVID 19 Pandemic. We have significantly upgraded the security in our synagogue and can look forward to an enriching year of programming, both online and in person.
Our sense of connection has remained strong and expanded its reach throughout the past year of educational and inspiring online offerings. For those who are unable to attend services and programs in person, they will continue to be available on Zoom, and Facebook Live Shabbat services will remain an option. Our goal is accessibility for all to participate.
Please complete your enclosed Membership Renewal Dues Commitment Forms for the 2022-2023 membership year, July 1, 2022- June 30, 2023, as soon as possible, and return them to the JCSVV in the self-addressed envelope. Your continued membership will help maintain the mission of having a Jewish presence in Sedona and the Verde Valley.
For the first time in a number of years, a dues increase has been applied. We have experienced additional expenditures, many of which have been applied toward improved benefits for JCSVV members. These include advanced technologies which now ensure that our online programs and services are available to members regardless of the time zone in which you live, with Facebook Live Streaming and video recordings of our presentations. We have also enhanced our physical building with features such as an expanded library, and we have significantly upgraded the security in our synagogue. We hope you will take advantage of these benefits which we are now able to offer our members.
If your financial situation has resulted in a need for a dues adjustment, please contact Sybil Malinowski Melody, President at 928.204.1286 or contact the JCSVV Office by email at . All communications are confidential.
If you wish to offer additional funds, please review the Tzedakah Circles on the enclosed Dues Commitment Form. This elevated donation will help to support synagogue ritual, cultural, social and educational programming.
We have included information in this packet on funding your membership and other donations using Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD’s).
We thank you for your continued support.
With gratitude and blessings,
Sybil Malinowski Melody
