Membership Dues

As a valued HEA member, your ongoing support ensures that our synagogue will continue to provide a meaningful connection to Judaism for you and your family through prayer, simcha celebrations, Jewish holidays, and other community events, and spiritual support during difficult times.

This email provides information about your HEA membership renewal for the 2023 –2024 fiscal year, which began on May 1 and ends on April 30, 2024.

Here is what to expect when you receive your May billing statement. Please read it in its entirety.

  • A Board-approved dues increase of 5% across all membership categories  
    This decision, which was approved at the Tuesday, May 25th Board meeting, came after careful and thoughtful deliberation by the Finance Committee during the lengthy budget planning process.  It was decided that the increase would be necessary to continue to provide our congregants with a safe and welcoming space to worship and to provide the highest quality programming for our members, meeting the needs of all ages and life circumstances.
  • NOTE: All members are eligible for the 2023 Child Care Tax Credit for donations to the 2023 Pathways Campaign, and, in addition, Plus Members are eligible for the Child Care Tax Credit for the Preschool Development Fund dues portion of their overall dues
    Please refer to the 2023 Child Care Tax Credit information sheet.
  • Security Assessment of $150 for 2023-2024
    The HEA Security Committee continues to research and recommend ways to increase security for our members.  Outfitting the new Welcome Room with an intercom system and door release button and installing additional cameras and outside metal fencing are just some examples of how your tax-deductible Security Assessment fees will be spent. This is in addition to continuing to provide security during our Shabbat and High Holiday services and at other HEA events. 
  • Previous dues/fee balances
    Any outstanding 22/23 Security Assessment and Yizkor Book fees will only show up on your May statement if you ask us to remove those charges. They will show up on a separate line on your statement and will not be affected by the 5% dues increase.
  • Scheduled payments for 2022–2023 dues
    These will show up on a separate line on your statement and will not be affected by the 5% dues increase.
  • Prepayments for dues or other transactions
    These will show up with a negative balance on your statement.  Please get in touch with us if you have not already indicated how these monies will be applied to your account in the new fiscal year.   
  • Religious School dues/fee balances
    These balances will show up on a separate line item on your statement and will not be affected by the 5% dues increase.
