Supporting Woodlands, Together: 5783 Commitment

To pledge your core annual support, please fill-out the box below.  The sustaining amount for SWT 5783 is $3,382. However, your pledge is based on your own personal circumstances, and your payments will be tax-deductible.

Please keep in mind that your SWT pledge for 5783 is separate from any Kesher school fees.  If you have children enrolled in Kesher, your total WCT bill will be made up of your SWT pledge + Kesher fees.  
Once you submit your membership form and the office creates and account for you, you will be able to access the WCT portal to set-up a payment plan, if needed.  
Welcome to Woodlands. We are delighted that you have chosen to be part of our community.

We hope that you will find membership an enriching experience and encourage you to explore the diverse opportunities for Jewish expression that Woodlands offers.

This agreement is a moral commitment between you and Woodlands Community Temple.
I have read the foregoing material regarding financial commitment, membership responsibilities and religious education. I understand the seriousness of my commitments and I agree to the following:

B. I also recognize that as a member of Woodlands Community Temple I have the obligation of:
  1. Serving approximately once a year as the host of an Oneg Shabbat to be held after a Friday evening service;
  2. Serving on traffic duty on temple grounds as needed (for parents whose children are attending religious school);
  3. Supporting my children fully in the commitment expected by the temple to continue their religious school education through Confirmation in tenth grade;

I understand that Woodlands relies on my commitment to maintain its operations and fulfill its obligations to its members, clergy, staff and others. I promise to make full payment of this commitment as set forth above.

I understand that this agreement shall not be binding upon either party until it is reviewed, accepted, and written confirmation of such acceptance is forwarded to applicant by a member of  Woodlands Community Temple's leadership.
