Dues Abatement

Temple Sinai welcomes all Jews in the community for membership, regardless of ability to contribute to the financial support of Temple. We have developed a dues abatement policy to foster an equitable and confidential mechanism whereby those unable to pay the full dues assessment may request consideration for reduced dues. While recognizing the need for dues adjustment, we do need to fund and support the following:

  • A Rabbi
  • A Synagogue
  • A Religious School
  • A Library
  • A Temple Administrator
  • Activities/Events/Programs
  • Music

After much study and experience, the Temple Sinai Board has developed a basis to apportion the cost of maintaining our religious community fairly among all of our members. We do this by basing all dues adjustments on one’s ability to pay.

A dues abatement or other arrangement can be requested as a part of filling out your annual Dues Commitment Form. You will receive an email response indicating your new dues commitment once the request has been approved.

Approved dues abatement requests are in effect for one year and must be renewed annually. In addition, while building fund commitments may be deferred to future periods, they are not subject to adjustment through this program.

All payment plans must be in place by April 15th each year.
