Membership Dues

Please click here if you need a membership application...
Thank you for your continuing Temple membership or your interest in becoming a member of Jewish Community of Ojai.

Member dues cover the period June 1 through May 31.

Dues may be paid in lump sum or in four installments using your credit card.  Please note that the installment option is only available when selected prior to September 1 of each fiscal year. Please note that there is an additional 3% added to cover credit card processing fees.

If you join the Temple after June 1, you may prorate your dues for the number of months remaining in the fiscal year.  For example, if you join on August 15, your dues will be 9/12 of the annual dues. This prorated amount must be paid in full by check.
Lump Sum Payment Option
(one payment for the year beginning June 1)

1. Pick the appropriate amount from the drop-down menu
2. Click the Donate button
After clicking Donate, you will be taken to the PayPal payment site where you can use your Visa, Master Card, Discover or American Express. After you pay your dues, you will be given an opportunity to make a contribution that will help pay the dues of members in need.

Note: You do not need a PayPal account to use this function.

If you belong to another temple which is your primary temple, our dues payments are reduced from those shown above.
These reduced payments are payable in one lump sum which should accompany your membership application.  

Or, you can pay by credit card by selecting the appropriate Membership Type from this drop-down menu and then clicking the Donate button.  You do not need a PayPal account to use your credit card.
Everyone Can Be a Member...

Our policy is that no one is turned away from Temple membership because of an inability to pay. 

Consideration will be given to those who request a dues reduction and qualify as a low income individual or family, or have other circumstances that necessitate a reduction to our standard dues. This will be treated confidentially. Please contact Fred Rothenberg, chair of our Finance Committee at 805-746-3022 to discuss dues reduction.
If you belong to another Temple...
If you are a new member joining after June 1...

Dues are prorated and begin on the first day of the month after you join. For example if you join on September 15, your dues for the fiscal year will begin on October 1.  Your total payment will be eight- twelfths (8/12) of the annual dues for your member category. Please add a 3% credit card processing fee to your calculation.

Your dues may be paid in a single payment via check or through PayPal.  If you choose PayPal, click on the Donate button and enter the amount due.
