2020 Dues and Fees

Please note: Our fiscal year runs from January 1 to December 31 each year.

At the annual meeting on November 17, 2019, the Congregation approved the 2020 Budget proposed by the Board of Trustees. The 2020 dues schedule** is as follows:

  • Family – $2953
  • Family-OAHoH – $2363
  • Single – $1773
  • Associate – $995
  • Under 30 – $0

See below for descriptions of the membership categories.

**Consider “Rounding-Up” your dues payment. Additional revenue of approximately
$4,000 would be generated if half of our members “rounded-up.” Plus, your generous gift will help further support Temple Sinai.

In addition to Dues, the Congregation voted to continue to assess two (2) fees to be paid by each membership unit: a $36 Annual Facility Fee and a $60 Annual Security Fee.


We request that members complete a Dues Commitment Form by January 31 of each year. This helps us with budget planning, and allows us to better serve the community and assist those who may need special arrangements. 

Temple Sinai members can choose from several ways to arrange their dues payments. We offer payment arrangements to fit any budget and accept cash, check, credit card, ACH Debit, and stock transfer.

Members may make payments electronically at any time by logging into ChaverWeb.
