MEMBERSHIP PORTAL FAQ

 

We are delighted to announce the integration of Shulcloud as our dedicated "Membership Portal." This technology upgrade represents a significant step forward for our shul, aligning us with modern times while preserving our traditions. Shulcloud, a renowned synagogue management software, has been adopted by more than 900 synagogues across the United States, tailored to address the unique needs of synagogues and their cherished members.

 

Our current utilization of Shulcloud encompasses several essential functions, including account management, bill payments, record updates, and certain program registrations. Looking ahead, we plan to harness its capabilities to launch our member directory and facilitate additional program registrations.

 

We recognize that adapting to new technology can be daunting at first, and we remain committed to providing the same unwavering support as always.
