Thank you for your interest in membership! Please fill out all requested information below. A $100 deposit is required to submit the application online. If you prefer to fill out and submit a paper version, please print this file: Membership Application
Before you fill out the application, please note the following:
Confidentiality: The information you share with us helps us to serve one another more effectively, and helps us plan future programs. All financial information you provide will remain confidential.
Applicants Under 30 Years Old: Applicants under age 30 will be granted a one-year free membership. Age qualification for families will be based on the age of the older spouse, and is granted only one time per family. To qualify, the application must be received by the Temple before the applicant’s 30th birthday. At the end of one year, the member will be asked to make an annual dues commitment.
Interfaith Families: RCOS welcomes interfaith families, provided one spouse is Jewish. We consider the non-Jewish spouse/partner of a RCOS member to be a member, too. Non-Jewish members may retain their RCOS membership, even after the death or divorce of their Jewish spouse. Should you have any questions, please contact the Rabbi directly.
Financial Commitment: Members pay annual dues. Plus, each new member family is assessed a Building Fund fee of $1,000 which is payable over five years.
Religious School and Lakin Preschool: Tuition for Religious School or Lakin Preschool is not included in the annual dues commitment. Please contact Holly Michelson to learn more about Religious School. Please contact Holli Winick Viau to learn more about the Lakin Preschool.
In the next week or so, I will follow up with a phone call. In the meantime, please feel free to call or email me, or call the office if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our congregation!
Shalom, Lynn Driben, Membership Committee Chairperson 610-698-4665 Lmdriben@comcast.net
