MEMBERSHIP PRIVILEGES

Membership entitles each member to a cemetery lot with the adjacent space to be reserved for spouse, if any. Each member has the right to participate in the Membership Meetings, to vote and to hold offices. Each member is entitled to one vote. Membership privileges, except the right to vote or to hold office, extend to unmarried children under the age of 22.

There are 2 types of memberships:

Family Membership – annual dues are $45.00

Single Membership – annual dues are $25.00


Please note: a one-time initiation fee is assessed on each membership application. This fee is based on the age of the oldest person requesting membership.

MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS:
Every Jewish person (born of a Jewish mother or a convert according to Halachic conversion) may become a member after having reached the age of 22. However, a married couple, either one of whom or both are under the age of 22, must obtain their own membership. Failure to do so shall negate all membership rights and privileges.

Membership applications are decided upon by majority vote of the Board of Directors.

A member may, by decision of the Board of Directors, be expelled if such expulsion lies in the interest of the Chevra. The same applies to a member who has become in arrears for more than two years in payment of his dues. If a member wishes to no longer remain a member of the Chevra, the remaining dues will not be refunded.
