We are thrilled to welcome you and appreciate your interest in becoming a member of our community. Your contribution helps us introduce exciting new programs and sustain our social action initiatives as we collaborate to make a positive impact on the world.

We have flexible options for financial dues—pay all at once or in installments. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. We understand your financial situation may be unstable. Radical inclusivity is our intention across the board.

Young adults, ages 20-35, you have a choice! You can participate in our Young Adult First Year Free Membership program or you can choose a financial commitment that works for you, using the self-assessment tool below as well as your knowledge of your resources. Whichever option you choose, we welcome you to the Or Shalom Community!

We welcome you to develop your own partnership level with us using our self-assessment tool which will help you to determine your Sustaining Share.
