Chizuk Amuno Congregation

Connected@Chizuk

We welcome you and your family to continue to learn and pray with us each day in ways that we
believe will elevate your search for meaning and deepen your faith.

We also invite you to keep in touch, reach out to us in times of need, and stay informed as
we explore together the challenges and responses to COVID-19 through a Jewish lens.

Although our campus is temporarily closed, our community and all that we are able to
offer at this time remain available and open to you in new and exciting ways. Some of our current offerings are listed below.
May we all enjoy in peace, community, and good health!

Membership Contribution

We have organized our dues structure with the goal of making membership possible for young families, single parent households, young professionals, and those experiencing financial hardship. To help us fulfill our mission, serve our members and community, educate our children, and involve ourselves with improving the world, we appreciate and rely upon the financial commitment of our members.

Personal financial hardship is never a barrier to synagogue membership. Membership Dues variances and school scholarships are available for those with financial need. Please contact our Executive Director, Lee Sherman (410-486-6400) for a confidential discussion.
