Our Remote Membership extends membership benefits to remote participants who join our programs via Zoom: Annual fees are $690 for 1 adult household, or 60% of the fair share dues level. Remote members are eligible to serve on committees or as Board members if nominated.

Additionally, for those under 28, we have a young adult membership.
We're excited to introduce our new membership model at Woodstock Jewish Congregation, designed to meet diverse needs and circumstances.

Membership for adults aged 28 and older can choose either Set Dues or Fair Share Dues.

Set Dues offer straightforward options: $1,800 for 2 adult households.

Fair Share Dues allows members to select a commitment based on their adjusted gross income using our Fair Share Dues Schedule.

Our Zoom Only Membership extends membership benefits to remote participants who join our programs via Zoom: Annual fees are $1,035 for 2 adult households, or 60% of the fair share dues level. 
 

A 1 adult household membership includes one adult, all children under the age of 22, and dependents with special needs. If there is a second primary adult in your household, we ask that you go back and select a 2 adult household option. Under this new model, if you are unable to meet this set dues amount, please refer to the Fair Share dues.
The WJC enjoys the participation of many individuals who experience services, teachings and other programs through the power of Zoom. These individuals are scattered throughout the state and country, often at some distance from the shul, or cannot otherwise attend WJC events in person. We want to encourage their participation and invite them to recognize the WJC as their spiritual community through a Zoom membership. By becoming a Zoom member, one can also serve on committees as well as take on a governance role as a board member should they so desire and be nominated.

We request an annual fee of $690 for Zoom Membership for a 1 adult household.

Under 28

Between the ages of 22 and 27, members can join at a significantly reduced level with slight increases each year to build up to full commitment. Regardless of one’s exact age, young adults enter membership at the first year rate. However, upon reaching age 28, full membership commitment is expected, regardless of the total years of membership.

A 2 adult household membership includes two adults, all children under the age of 22, and dependents with special needs. Under this new model, if you are unable to meet this set dues amount, please refer to the Fair Share dues.


Fair Share Dues

The WJC wishes to affirm our community’s value of accessibility to WJC membership, regardless of ability to pay. It also wishes to uphold our obligation to create a kehillah kedoshah - a holy community – where we each assume responsibility for meeting the costs of maintaining and operating our synagogue. A Fair Share Dues system, which is currently being offered as an alternative, allocates a portion of that financial responsibility among our community members based on their household income.

Please refer to the Fair Share Dues Schedule below. This schedule should help you assess your membership commitment. We are not asking you to disclose details concerning your income, nor are any financial documents required. We ask only that you select your dues level as honestly and accurately as possible. You are the expert on what is accessible for you to financially contribute.

If you would like to speak with someone about how to calculate your income, help you decide which dues option works best for you, or seek other financial assistance, please contact the Executive Director (rahel@wjcshul.org /845-679-2218) or Treasurer (treasurer@wjcshul.org) to discuss.

All financial information will be treated with the strictest confidentiality.

Members are expected to contribute at least $200 per year, starting in the third year of a standard membership and until a total of $1,000 has been paid to the building fund. If you are a current member, you can elect to start your payments in 2024, 2025 or 2026. This contribution will be waived during the years in which members are paying tuition for children in our Family School or B’Mitzvah Program.
The WJC honors those members who contribute above and beyond their standard dues payments or give a significant contribution of their time to the success of the WJC. Households that contribute $1800 (“Chai”) above their dues level, will be recognized as members of the Chai Circle.

Additionally, notable volunteers will be selected by the Board each year. All members of the Chai Circle will receive up to three additional tickets for the following High Holiday services. If members cannot personally use their tickets, they are welcome to donate them to participants who cannot afford the cost of High Holiday services. Additional events may be scheduled for Chai Circle members at the WJC’s discretion.


 

In order to be a member in good standing, we request that you make a contribution to the WJC upon completing this form, even if you would rather make your full contribution via check or other payment method.

On the next page you will be directed to make your contribution, which is displayed below and calculated based on your above selections. You will be able to elect to make your full commitment now or make a recurring contribution of your choosing. All contributions for this year should be made in full by June 1, 2025.

If you are logged into your account you will be able to record your preferences and send a check(s) at your convenience or make your contribution through a donor advised fund.
