*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 2019-2020, 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.
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 finance department at 702-254-5110 Ext. 102 for further information.
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.
The Temple Sinai security fee enables us to provide 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.
Temple Sinai is pleased to define it Membership and Services Payment Policy as follows:
Temple Sinai guarantees that no membership will ever be denied for families with just financial cause and membership and fees may be reduced if applied for through the confidential process of the financial aid committee and all required paperwork is filled out. That is the only mechanism for membership adjustment.
Temple Sinai looks forward to preparing your child to be called to the Torah as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. In preparation, your child will start one-on-one sessions with our Rabbi, Cantor, or temple assigned tutor approximately 6 months before his or her Bar or Bat Mitzvah. The Board of Trustees has adopted a B’nai Mitzvah fee of $850 and this fee must be paid before your child begins his or her sessions ($250 of this amount is paid at time of reserving date). The remaining balance may be spread out however must be paid prior to starting with training.
