Membership

By joining today as a Full or Associate member you play a key part in the sustained growth of our shul - a warm spiritual home, where Ashkenazic and Sephardic congregations are joined together under one roof and unified by Torah and a love of Eretz Yisrael.

Full membership entitles you to complimentary Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur seats (for adults), voting rights at our annual meeting, and a discount on social hall rental fees. We have different levels for families, individuals, families and couples under 30 years old, and first-year members.

Associate membership is offered to those who have full membership at another shul and entitles you to a discount on social hall rental fees.

No one will ever be refused membership for financial reasons. If you are unable to pay the entire membership amount, please contact the Finance Committee to discuss alternate arrangements at finance@skokieshul.org.

BUILDING FUND (required)

All members (after 1 year of membership) are required to contribute to the KCT Building Fund. This is an essential part of maintaining the synagogue’s financial health, providing important capital for our mortgage and helping maintain the overall aesthetic of the newest shul in Skokie. The Building Fund is set at $6,000 over 4 years ($125 per month), with discounts available for early payment per the schedule below.

Those families or individuals joining KCT for the first time in 2020 are exempt from the Building Fund for their first year of membership.

The goal is 100% participation from all members. If you have questions regarding the building fund, dedication opportunities or would like to discuss alternate arrangements to participating in the Building Fund, please contact the Finance Committee at finance@skokieshul.org.


MAKOM KAVUA (optional)

As part of our initial building capital raise, we started to offer the opportunity for full members to buy their seats or "makom" in our beautiful new sanctuary in an effort to raise additional funds for the shul. These funds are another very important capital raising initiative to ensure the shul can operate and offer all the current services to the community.

 

Therefore, as a way to continue our fund raising efforts for KCT, we continue to offer any full member in good standing, the opportunity to acquire naming rights (makom) for seats in the shul for $1,200 per chair, for a 3 year period.  This would not preclude others from sitting in these chairs as everyone, (members and guests), are always welcome but we would ask people to choose seats that are not otherwise reserved with name plates on them, assuming other seats are available.  The reserved seating program is an important fundraiser for the shul and we ask you wait until at least 10am before taking a reserved seat, assuming other seats are available. Only full members in good standing who have paid all prior balances and signed up for next year's membership may buy these naming rights. Good standing includes either paying in full or being on a payment plan for the building fundIf you are interested in naming rights for a seat (men or women's section), please e-mail Matthew Koenig (matthew.koenig@ey.com).

   Men's Section Ashkenaz - $1,200.00
   Women's Section Ashkenaz - $1,200.00
   Men's Section Sephardic - $1,200.00
   Women's Section Sephardic - $1,200.00
