Membership/Online Visitor category FAQs

The Covenant of Connection (Membership) Categories:

Full Member 

Digital Members 

  • People who live outside Mishkan Shalom’s geographic area by more than an 1 hour away and may or may not be members elsewhere. 
  • Welcome to give at any self-assessed level - begin by filling out Pledge Form here
  • Please see table below for benefits and responsibilities

Online Visitors (9-month access following High Holy Days, for those who are not yet digital members or are local and full members of other congregations.) After the initial period visitors will be asked to join as full or digital members to continue receiving links. 

What is the reasoning behind adding digital membership and online visitor statuses?

  • The objectives are to give an additional way into membership for those former members or those seeking more ongoing connection with us who are too far away (120 miles) to access services and programs.

Do we expect online visitors to transition to full membership?

  • We would like all prospective members to transition to either full local or digital member status.

Are we anticipating online participation once we resume in-person offerings?

  • Yes, some offerings will remain wholly on-line. Other online access when we are in person will vary.

What is the relation of these new ways of connecting (new membership categories) to our annual High Holy Day services and contributions?

  • Self-assessed donations to join us for the High Holy Days will remain in place for all participants just as in the past.

What services are provided to each status?
