Judiasm For Sale

I just had a fascinating conversation with a colleague of mine here in DC. He's Jewish and told me that he and his young wife had to pay almost 5,ooo just to join a synagogue here. For high holy days (Rosh HaShana, Yom Kippur, etc) they have to pay MORE money to receive an admission ticket or they'll be turned away.

Can you fucking believe that?
