Renew Your Membership
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have special pricing for students, young adults, seniors, or out-of-town households?
Young adults, seniors, students, and out-of-towners are important contributors to our community, and we endeavor to do all that we can to help them join and remain members. Rather than having special membership category pricing, we invite those whose income is limited, for any reason, to set their own membership dues. Becoming a member this way is easy and requires no interview or additional paperwork.
Can I pay my dues in installments?
Yes! You can pay in monthly or quarterly installments, which can be set up as part of your membership renewal process. For more information about payment plans, please contact Matthew Davey.
How do I pay my open balance online?
You can use this form for payment of open balances on your household account. Please make sure that you have already completed your membership renewal form prior to submitting payment for your membership dues.
I am in a difficult financial position and cannot afford my designated dues amount. What should I do?
Finances are never a barrier to joining the BJ community, and no one will be turned away for financial reasons. If sliding scale dues are not affordable for you, you have the option to pay what you can by setting your own dues. Monthly or quarterly payment plans are also available.
What does it mean to be a member in good standing?
BJ’s bylaws require members to be in Good Standing to access all the benefits of membership, including pastoral care and lifecycle support, High Holy Days seating, and participation in the Annual Meeting.
How many High Holy Days entrance cards do I get with my membership?
Our members in good standing are entitled to a High Holy Days entrance card for each family member in the household account. BJ policy allows adult children to be a part of their parent’s household account up to and including 26 years of age.
