The U.S. will soon elect a new President and
Congress. If they are to aggressively pursue a durable peace
from the start, they will need a solid political base of
grassroots support. Now is a critical time for Brit Tzedek's
work. Will you join us? Become a member today, as
thousands of others have.
What do membership dues fund?
Membership dues form the backbone of financial
support for all of Brit Tzedek's work. Approximately one half of
the organization's overall budget comes from contributions from
our individual members (the rest is from a small number of major
donors and foundations).
What do these dues cover?
Salaries and benefits of our small and dedicated
staff, including executive and deputy directors, chapter
organizer, DC representative, and administrative staff
Rent for our offices in Chicago, NYC, and DC
Costs related to staying in touch with our
members by email and mail, and maintenance of our website
All materials associated with the operation of
Payment to every chartered chapter of $6/year
for every chapter member in good standing. Hence, the dues also
form the full basis of the each chapter’s operations,
including the costs of rental space for events, advertising,
photocopying, the chapter phone, postage for our newsletters,
etc. (All labor at the chapter level is volunteer so there are
no chapter-level personnel costs).
What is the work of Brit
- Write and issue action alerts, educational materials, media
and other communications
- Develop and manage national campaigns
- Plan and execute speaker tours, conferences, and most
notably our flagship annual National Advocacy Days and
Grassroots Leadership Training Institute
- Fundraise among our major donors and foundations
- Maintain the national website and national database
- Coordinate and support the activities of some 38 (and
growing) chapters and our national committees
- Grow and support the national Rabbinic Cabinet, producing
and distributing publications and materials developed by
Rabbinic Cabinet members
In other words, dues are the vital lifeblood of the
organization -- both for the national organization, and for the
chapters, including your own. Joining Brit Tzedek, or renewing
your membership, is a significant way to support the
organization, and help it in its effort to bring about a
two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
