Am Kolel depends upon the
generosity of our members and friends. Our
membership is small, under 100 households, while those enjoying our
resources and events are many times more that number. But our dues
only generate 15% of our total income. The rest comes from
programs and life cycle income, special gifts, small grants,
sales, tuition, and our December and June Appeals. Below you
will see opportunities for supporting our unique work in the
