There are many ways to become involved and serve the Havurah community.  Whether you choose to volunteer, become a member or make a financial contribution your participation is appreciated.

Membership and donations are a vital part of our annual budget and help to ensure Havurat Ee Shalom’s presence on Vashon Island.  Our year begins and ends about September (at Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year).  Havurat Ee Shalom (also called the Vashon Havurah) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit religious organization; all contributions and membership dues are fully tax deductible.

Dues are entirely self-assessed, meaning dues of any amount are welcome, and all financial information is confidential.  Active members give $500 to $1,000 a year. You can view a suggested “Fair Share” membership dues schedule here.
