At Chabad, we believe in an open-door policy, where everyone is welcome regardless of affiliation, background or financial status. Unlike traditional synagogues, Chabad of Berkeley does not ask for annual membership dues or require any building fund payments. Yet, we still have bills to pay.

Each Chabad Center is self-supporting and is funded individually from the charitable giving of individuals. The Chai Club is comprised of individuals committed to the financial support of Chabad of Berkeley. These monthly donations in multiples of $18 (the numeric value of the Hebrew word “Chai”, meaning life) add up and make a great difference in covering Chabad's operational budget.

Every $18 is significant! Watch this!

Ten people giving $18 per month is $180 per month / $2,160 per year

Now if Chabad had…

ten donors at $18 per month 
ten donors at $36 per month 
ten donors at $72 per month 
ten donors at $108 per month 
ten donors at $180 per month 

That would mean 50 donors are 
contributing $49,680 annually

Add another 50 donors and it’s approximately $100,000 annually.

The exponential growth potential is amazing!
