Membership Unit Definitions:

*A family membership is either a husband and wife or domestic partners, living in the same household, with or without minor children, or children enrolled in a college or university up to the age of 25, or in the military service.

This category doesn’t include grandparents, parents, adult children, grandchildren, sister-in-laws, brother-in-laws, mother-in-laws, father-in-laws, etc.
For fiscal year 2017-2018, the Board of Trustees has determined this classification, will include all married couples or domestic partners who are living in the same household and aren’t defined as seniors.

A single membership is an individual with or without children living in the same household, or children enrolled in a college or university up to the age of 25, or in the military service.

**BUILDING FUND

To maintain and improve the existing facilities the board has adopted a building fund commitment for each member of $2,500, which can be paid over a five year period with a contribution of at least $500 per year.

Members who have already paid a building fund at another temple or synagogue may receive special consideration, per the Union of Reform Judaism’s program, that Temple Sinai has adopted. Please contact the accounting department at the office (702-254-5110) for further information.

***YOUNG FAMILY MEMBER

This category was created by the Board of Trustees to assist young families, when joining our temple. The young family member price level is open to all families, whose head of household is 35 years old and younger. These households will enjoy the full benefits of membership at a lower support level for the first two years. Also, during the first two-years in this category, the building fund will be deferred.

****SECURITY

The Temple Sinai security fee is going to enable us to provide more video and human surveillance on the Hillpointe campus. As recent events have shown us no system is foolproof, so we are developing a layered approach to security. We can’t be a fortress, but vigilance is a necessity.
