Membership Renewal

Our voluntary dues membership process requires each household to make an informed decision based on Mishkan Shalom’s needs and your circumstances. Those who have the means will give more and those who can afford less will give up to their ability. To guide your decision, we have developed a series of Membership Commitment Levels.
