COMMUNITY COMMITMENT (VCS)

What is your Community Commitment?

Kol Ami is a Kehilah Kedoshah – a holy, inclusive community whose members rely on one another and which strives to help people of all ages and backgrounds find joy, meaning and support through Judaism. 

In line with these values, in 2018, Kol Ami moved to a Voluntary Community Support (VCS) model replacing traditional membership dues. Under this model, each household contributes financially to the community to the best of their ability. The VCS model speaks to our value of inclusiveness by eliminating the discomfort of a dues relief process.

We noticed that the VCS name caused confusion among our members. We are therefore renaming our membership model to "Community Commitment". The spirit of the model is now in the name - it's your commitment to our Kol Ami community. Just as we share in all that our community has to offer, together we commit to sharing the costs of the community. We hope that your Community Commitment reflects the most generous contribution that you can afford.

Be a Sustainer!

Please become a Sustainer of the Congregation. It costs $3,600 per family to run Kol Ami. Last year, many of our families stepped up and contributed to our community at one of our sustaining levels. This year, we need your help! To sustain our operations and our amazing community, consider joining one of these Sustainer levels at Kol Ami:

Kol Ami Sustainer Levels

  • Shir Halleluyah (A Song of Praise): $3,600 and up ($260/month)

  • Havah Nashirah (Let Us Sing): $5,000 and up ($417/month)

  • Shir Chadash (A New Song): $7500 and up ($625/month)

  • Shiru L’Adonai (Sing unto God): $10,000 and up ($833/month)


If you have any questions about Community Commitment membership please contact the Kol Ami office, email Dana Glickman or contact Membership Chair Ed Yudin.

Gifts can be divided into as many as 12 monthly installments***

MEDICAL INFORMATION
Nut Awareness Policy

We have a number of students who suffer from severe nut allergies. Even trace amounts of a problem food can cause a life-threatening allergic reaction.  

Please help us maintain a safe community by keeping all nuts and nut products out of the school (peanuts, walnuts, almonds and all other tree nuts). Even those foods labelled with “may contain" or "traces of" in the list of ingredients can be harmful. We appreciate your assistance in making the school safe for every student.

While we strive to be a nut aware facility, we cannot guarantee that your child will not come into contact with products containing nuts. Every reasonable effort will be made to provide a nut aware environment at Kol Ami. Our Staff, members, and students cannot be held responsible. The ultimate responsibility lies with the parents and student to ensure their safety. It is therefore important that if your child has serious allergies, inform us upon registration, and provide any necessary instructions and an EpiPen.
