ADMINISTRATION
 

On the next page you will be presented with payment options.

Although support from our members is essential to the operation of temple, we are Kehillah Kedoshah--a sacred community. We want the interactions between our office and our members to be a point of connection, not about collections. As you may be aware, the temple made some changes to how membership commitment payments are accepted. We now ask that every member make payment arrangements up-front so that we can better manage temple resources, and focus more on providing the services, programming and education opportunities that are central to who we are as a community.

Membership Dues and Religious School fees are due and payable on July 1. For your convenience, there are a few options from which you may choose.

  • Pay in Full by check by July 1.
  • If you choose to pay by credit card (3% fee). -- You may choose to pay in a single payment, or via 2-10 monthly installments, right on the payment page.
  • Pay by electronic check (ACH) in one payment or up to 10 monthly installments.
  • Contact the office to make other payment arrangements or to apply for Financial Assistance. Please note that 25% of the dues commitment must be paid by August 1st in or to get High Holy Day Tickets.
If you are not able to make a payment in full, please consider making recurring electronic payments. There is a 3% fee on all credit card transactions, but there is NO additional fee for ACH payments. If you would like to set up an ACH payment, but have trouble using the new system, please enter your TOTAL from above into this form or call or email Wendy Levenkron, our bookkeeper, to set it up for you. We apologize for the inconvenience, we are working with ShulCloud to address this issue. 


IMPORTANT NOTE: If you wish to have your contribution billed to your account and wish to establish a multiple payment arrangement, please select Bill To My Account on the next page, and DO NOT change the payment amount/frequency.  You will then need to email bookkeeper@bethchaim.org to make your alternate payment arrangements. 

By completing this form, I am affirming that all the information entered here is accurate and up to date, to the best of my knowledge.
