Monthly Dues Calculation Form

This Monthly Dues Calculation form is meant to illustrate the regular monthly assessment for membership at Temple Shaari Emeth, for those families who do not qualify for a Young Family Membership (no children eligible for Kindergarten or above) or a Senior Membership.  All children that are Kindergarten age and above are included in membership, regardless of whether they are enrolled in Religious School.  There is an additional $125 Registration Fee per year for each child enrolled in Religious School.

With the exception of the $125 School Registration Fee, all other benefits of membership are included, including Religious School tuition for kindergarten through 12th grade, youth group membership, High Holy Days tickets, and lifecycle events. Sisterhood & Men's Club membership is included for the first year of Temple membership.  There is an $1,200 B'nai Mitzvah fee that is assessed one year before the ceremony (Fee includes lessons and sponsorship of Friday night Oneg, babysitting during service, and a contribution to the Open Door Food Pantry).

Put simply, our goal is to enter into a covenant with you. We hope that this tool makes the value of our covenant easy to understand.

The amounts calculated on this form are for informational purposes only.  Dues amounts cannot be finalized until an application for membership is completed.

The cost per adult is $1,200

The dues for each of the first two children eligible for K through 10th grade is $720 per year. The third child in that age group is $360.

The dues per child in this age group is $156 per year.

The total building fund obligation upon joining TSE is $2,500.  To ease the financial burden of this obligation it is billed in monthly installments over a period of up to five years.  The building fund balance, if any, is due upon resignation.

This is for preliminary information only. The Executive Director can confirm the annual dues and building fund obligation, and monthly payments.  There is also a "Special Arrangements" application for consideration of reduced dues due to financial hardship. 

* First year dues, for those that were not previously members, is discounted by 50% the first year of membership. The monthly Building Fund charge is not discounted. The amount calculated on this page is the non-discounted monthly dues amount.
