Chai Club

  • What does Membership look like at an organization where people belong but there are no Membership dues?

    Now you’re wondering what I’m talking about, so  I’ll tell you:

    CHABAD HAS NO MEMBERSHIP DUES.

    Why? Because every Jew is a member at Chabad!
    Don’t believe me? Try walking into any Chabad center and you’ll be welcomed and embraced just like any involved member of the community. No one is ever turned away; no one ever feels less important because of lack of funds, lack of Jewish knowledge or their level of observance.
    When we are asked "how many members do you have?" our answer always is "however many Jews there are in town".

    YES, CHABAD STILL HAS BILLS TO PAY!

    Thank G-d, each year Chabad continues to grow and so does our budget.
    We pride ourselves in being very careful with our funds, stretching every dollar to the fullest; and No, we do not receive monetary support from Chabad headquarters!

    SO HOW DO WE PAY OUR BILLS WITHOUT COLLECTING MEMBERSHIP DUES?

    Support for Chabad’s work comes from voluntary gifts rather than mandatory dues. Our work is supported by dedicated, generous friends in the community who believe in our vision and want to partner in our mission to make Judaism accessible and relevant to all. These caring people join our voluntary structure of philanthropic giving in one of 3 tiers.
