Building Improvement Fund
In addition to your membership support, which supports Ramath Orah's operations, we are in the midst of a number of major building improvements that will help make our infrastructure more secure, accessible, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.

In the past two years, we renovated our bimah to add an internal ramp to make it easier to access the bimah, and glass panels to make it easier to see. In the coming year, we aim to improve the carpeting, upgrade our security system, replace our front doors, and more.

Building improvements such as these rely on every member to participate. Whereas your general membership supports our operations, this contribution is earmarked for building improvements. You may learn about our ongoing plans on the bimah and mechitzah campaign, and may contribute on that web page, or you may contribute here while renewing your membership.

Thank you for supporting the Building Fund. If you wish, you may bill your account now and make separate payment arrangements with the office.

Ramath Orah depends on membership dues to support our daily operating expenses.  We value all contributions, and your request for modification of the membership rate will be accommodated. All communications about reduced payments will be kept confidential. 

Please consider adding these additional line items to support year-round shul expenses:
*Note- Line item donations are included in Patron Membership

Security expenses form an increasing part of our budget.

Support the cost of our kiddushes throughout the year. One-time payment.

Children's Programming

Community Institutions
Show your support for the Upper West Side Community.  Along with other local shuls, CRO provides financial support for community-run endeavors so that they can continue to be maintained - the Eruv, Mikveh and Yoetzet Halacha.  Please help us in paying our share by being a Community Sponsor; their existence relies on our support.

The Eruv facilitates our mobility on Shabbat and requires weekly maintenance.  For more information:
