Temple Ohabei Shalom, like every synagogue community, relies on the financial support of its participants in order to provide a broad array of programming and services. Membership is an investment in a rich and vibrant community for the present and for the future.

Temple Ohabei Shalom is committed to welcoming all members regardless of their financial circumstances. If your dues amount poses a hardship for your family, you will find a sympathetic ear and a willingness to make special arrangements. Please contact Naomi Gurt Lind, Executive Director, at 617.277.6610, with any questions or concerns about Temple dues.

As always, need-based adjustments are available. Please contact Executive Director Bill McCarthy at 617.277.6610 for a confidential and sympathetic discussion.
