Response to “Does Your Synagogue Practice Financial Transparency”

John Humleker, the Executive Director of Shir Tikvah in Minneapolis, wrote the email below to me regarding financial transparency. Check out the link he included which highlights the action plan of the Shir Tikvah leadership regarding their dues/annual commitment model.

Thanks so much for the kudos, John. And keep up the great work.

Hi David

I thought I would give you an update on financial planning – yesterday I updated our financially speaking page on our website which will give you I hope a clear overview of where we are going in the next couple of years. It was after talking with you that I figured out that to up our percentage of dues and lower tuition couldn’t be the message to the congregation – at least to begin with.  So let me know what you think – so far it has been pretty well received but there is always opportunities to improve. Thanks again for your support and your Blog which I continue to love!

All the best
