Synagogue Cemetery Management Software
Cemetery Management is unfortunately one of the features ShulCloud™ has to offer our Jewish congregations. Many Synagogues manage one or more cemetery locations for their communities and members, thus keeping track of who owns which plots, if those plots are paid and occupied, is a crucial part of the day-to-day operations of the synagogue’s staff.
ShulCloud’s Cemetery Management tools aim to make this process efficient and streamlined in order to focus more on the bereaving member and family, versus worrying about where to find a plot, how the member will pay for it and other logistical concerns over burials.

Synagogue Membership Database
ShulCloud™ is a complete and comprehensive Synagogue software application that resides on the web, in "the cloud." That means your whole membership database is stored securely on cloud servers, accessible via any web browser with internet access.
You no longer need to run software on your computer. You no longer need to give members remote access to the software. This software and your membership database is accessible from anywhere in the world where you have an Internet connection.
The membership database is designed specifically for a synagogue and their members. It supports basic profiles including member name, address, tribe, alyiah eligibility, family members (children, grandchildren, parents, etc), birthdays, yarzeits, schools and much much more.
Stop worrying if your data is secure and backed up - let us do the worrying for you!

Invoicing and Pledging Management
Simplify Shul Collections
Trouble collecting money from congregates? Let ShulCloud™ help.
Not only does ShulCloud™ help you better organize your invoicing but helps you increase your collections.
Through the use of the mass email system, you can quickly and effortlessly notify members who are late on payments.
The emails contain secure links to log the member into the payment system to give them a quick way to pay online.
Members can also see all past due invoices and pay them online.
Making it easier to give members information on how much they owe and a method of paying it immediately has lead to increase collections and revenues for synagogues. Plus, emailing them often about outstanding balances has never been so easy.
Lifecycle Management with Notices
Yahrzeit Management Software
ShulCloud™ offers comprehensive Yahrzeit management tools to help you and your members remember the passing of family members.
The yahrzeit data can be managed by both the members themselves and your shul's staff and volunteers. The relationship of the deceased is structured so that if multiple members in your congregation observe the same yahrzeit, the software knows. For example, if there are two brothers in the shul who lost their father, that father record will be associated directly to both brother members without duplication.
Yahrzeits show on the members private calendar, as do birthdays and anniversaries.
Gabbaim have reports that inform them of upcoming yahrzeits in order to remind them to give the member an honor or kibbud in shul on shabbos.
Reminder mailings, both email and print, can be generated and mass mailed to members offering them an additional reminder of the important date. We call these lifecycle events and help you help your members stay on top of important dates and events.
Synagogue Member Login
Each member of your congregation within the ShulCloud™ system can login securely to the membership database to see their personal information.
Members have access to update their profiles, family members, email subscriptions, yartzeits, birthdays and much more.
Members who do not have a login will be able to register online by filling out a registration form. The site administrators will be notified of the new registration and then be able to approve or reject the individual from gaining access to the system.
Forget your password, no problem - use the forgot your password link.
Want us to import your membership database for you? No problem, contact us for more information on that.

The best part, it is secure and only available for members within the shul. Plus, members can define what is available to other members and what is not.
Never forget a face again.
Synagogue School Software
Many Synagogues run Sunday or daily Hebrew schools. Managing the school within a synagogue is like a second full time job. ShulCloud™ has tools to help you manage the billing, classes, students, parents and daily operations of the school.
ShulCloud™ has designed a school module specifically around how Synagogues operate their schools. The school module is not designed for any school but rather schools run by Synagogues.
ShulCloud's School Module enables student enrollment, streamlined school billing for deposits and ongoing tuition fees, student to class placement, teach to class placement and much more.
The adhoc school reporting engine gives administrators easy access to critical financial and student data on the fly.
Is the Shul's Gabbaim overworked? Want to make their job easier? Then check out ShulCloud's Gabbai Software.
Integrated with the member's database, it knows which yarzeits are coming up, who has birthdays, even who didn't get an alyiah in a while. Gabbaim can print out reports before Shabbos to have with them on Shabbos.
Additionally, it tracks who received which kibbudim and even who davened Mussaf, this way you can validate if Chazan Yankel actually does daven every shabbos despite what some members think.
Finally, the Gabbaim can enter in the pledges made for kibbudim, including "matanah" and either create invoices on the fly or send invoices into the treasure's queue for approval and submission.
Tax & Billing Statements
Synagogue Member Tax & Billing Statements
Financial & Executive Directors don't often look forward to sending out regular billing statements or end-of-year tax statements to their membership base. But with ShulCloud™, sending out both statements is quick and painless.You can quickly send out three types of statements through ShulCloud™.
- Open balance statements, showing a member what they currently owe the synagogue as of a specific date.
- Date range statements, showing all the activity within a specific date range.
- Tax statements that show only tax deductible transactions on the statements.
The statements can be customized both in layout, style and form. They can be emailed or physically mailed to the membership or anyone who has given money to the synagogue.
ShulCloud even handles partial tax deductible line items.

Zmanim and Service Schedule
Synagogue Zmanim & Jewish Times Updated Dynamically
Wouldn't it be nice if you were able to display the local Jewish halachic times (zmanim) on your web site? Wouldn't it be really nice if those times were based on your congregations location versus the city's centroid location? Wouldn't it be nice if you could customize those zmanim based on the shul's customs?
ShulCloud™ can help!
The Zmanim widget is standard on all packages within ShulCloud™. The times are based on the exact longitude and latitude of your synagogue's location and not based on the city's center. The times can be customized based on your shul's customs and variations.
The zmanim widget does all the calculations via complex algorithms that determine most of the popular Jewish halachic times. They include Alos Hashachar (Dawn), Earliest Tallis, Netz (Sunrise), Latest Shema, Zman Tefillah, Chatzos (Midday), Mincha Gedola, Mincha Ketana, Plag HaMincha, Shkiah (Sunset), Tzais Hakochovim, etc.
In addition, most of the calendar available in the standard or premium packages are based off the zmanim.
Finally, Zmanim specific to your community and congregation!
