Regular Membership – $225/year
A regular membership includes all membership mailings such as notices of special holiday observances and celebrations, adult education classes and lectures, and all other special events. This membership also includes a subscription to The Center Light, the monthly publication of the Van Cortlandt Jewish Center. Regular membership also includes eligibility for one covered member to vote at general membership meetings as well as to run for election to a position as an officer or on the Board of Trustees.
Alumni Membership $50/year
Alumni memberships are available for former members and/or Hebrew School alumni who no longer live in the Bronx. If you are neither a former member or school alum, you’re welcome to be an “Alumni” member! We welcome your desire to be part of our “family” and appreciate your support. An alumni membership includes all membership mailings and a subscription to The Center Light, just like the regular membership. However, alumni membership does not include eligibility to vote at general membership meetings or to run for election to a position as an officer or on the Board of Trustees.
