"It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but nor are you free to absolve yourself from it." Pirke Avot 2.16

We at the Jerusalem Great Synagogue are planning for the future, with the objective of creating an enduring communal spirit here in Jerusalem, centered around our regular worshipers and at the same time maintaining more contact with our valued friends living abroad.

We have received a number of comments relating to the fact that our worshipers, both local and from abroad, pay for reserved seats only for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We now plan to offer membership seats reserved for the whole year (including all chagim) and to place the name of the new member and his spouse on a plaque on the reserved seat for the duration of his/her membership.

The proposed annual subscription will be $1,200 (€1,050; £930; ₪4,000) per couple. Concessions may be made in confidence if appropriate.

We very much hope you will accept this invitation to support the Synagogue and enjoy and contribute to the communal spirit we are creating.

Please mail your check to P.O.Box 7924, Jerusalem 9107802, or pay by credit over the phone during office hours.

If you should need further information email us at Jgs@zahav.net.il or call us at +972-2-6230628.

With our best wishes for Shana Tova umevurechet.

Yours sincerely,
Asher Schapiro,   Chairman of The Board
