Become a Friend

As a “Friend” of Shaarei Shomayim, you become an important part of one of North America’s leading modern Orthodox synagogue communities. It is also an important way in which a member of another shul who attends our shul regularly can make a tangible contribution.

We look forward to informing you of our various activities and programs through our regular communications, mailings and Shabbat brochures. We welcome you to our numerous adult education and youth programs. As well, as a Friend, you will be able to attend any member functions such as Simchat Torah luncheon, Chanukah party, or Purim seudah at the same cost as a member.

We hope you will join us for both daily and Shabbat services. We have an active Gemara class, special shabbatons and the exciting Scholar-In-Residence program on Shabbat and holidays, and other popular shiurim and lecture series.

Further, as a Friend, you are entitled to the member discount for bookings for your events: wedding, bar/bat mitzvah, brit milah / baby naming, and more.

Donation levels for Friends are as follows:

This type of affiliation does not entitle one to High Holiday tickets or cemetery privileges.

Your donation is fully receiptable for income tax purposes and receipts will be issued each February for the prior calendar year.

Please download and fill in the form and return it with your payment by mail or drop it in to the office. We look forward to greeting you, Friend, in our community.
