Membership at Chochmat HaLev 2015-2016

We warmly invite you to become a member of Chochmat HaLev. When you make Chochmat HaLev your spiritual home, you become immersed in a Jewish renewal community grounded in the wisdom and tradition of our ancestors.

Chochmat HaLev, known for its transformative Sabbath and High Holiday services, is dedicated to providing its members with a meaningful Jewish experience every day and especially during their most important life-cycle events. Members are invited to celebrate births, bnei mitzvah, weddings, and other major events with the blessing of our clergy and in participation with the community. Our Torat Halev School is available to give our children a ground in Jewish values, practice and traditions made current and relevant to contemporary life.

Other member benefits of joining CHL include attendance at all services including free High Holiday admission, and reduced prices for classes and events.

For a limited time, when you join, we will be happy to make a gift of This is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared – The Days of Awe as a Journey of Transformation by Rabbi Alan Lew.

Chochmat relies largely on the generosity of our members to sustain our community, our leaders, our staff and the wonderful services we offer. Dues are the glue that bind us together and ensure that we’ll be here, year after year, and here for you when you need us – a community to hold you as you worship, celebrate, or mourn the loss of a beloved.

We have updated our dues level this year and in each of the next two years we will be asking our members to help us sustain our growing programs by “closing the gap” between our actual operating costs of $1500 per adult member and the revenue we raise through membership dues.

Our 2015/16 membership dues are:

• one adult family: $75/ month ($900 annually)
• two adult family: $150/month ($1800 annually)
• under 30 years old : $25/month ($300 annually)

If the member dues represent a financial hardship for you, please fill out the financial aid form and return it to the office. If you have any questions, please contact the office at 510-704-9687 or email
