Congregation Or Zarua's dues remain at the low end of the range charged by other congregations in our area. Our relatively low dues insure access to the Congregation by a diverse membership. Please note, however, that your dues cover only approximately 40% of our cost of operations; contributions and donations provide the rest! Donations to the various funds described below help us go from adequate to excellent. Please consider contributing to our Synagogue's funds in an area which interests you!
If you have to take a Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA this year, you can avoid paying any taxes on the distribution by having the custodian of your IRA make a direct payment to Congregation Or Zarua. This can be in the form of a straight contribution, or you can pre-pay your dues for future years.
Please type in the dollar amount or amounts you wish to pledge, below, and then fill in your name and contact information and click on the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page. The Synagogue office will send you a statement which you can send back with your payment.
