Chai Membership

Chai Benefactor Membership is a special membership category at the JCCNS, created in the spirit of the word Chai, which is Hebrew for life.

Chai Benefactor Membership is a way to support the JCCNS with your annual membership and includes a charitable contribution. An annual fee of $2,718 includes a tax-deductible charitable contribution, membership dues and Health Club membership fees. The charitable portion of your Chai Membership supports scholarships for preschool, inclusion, camp, and membership. Your Chai membership can be paid annually or monthly. In addition, Chai members enjoy these many perks:

  • Name listed on Chai Plaque in front lobby
  • Annual invitation to our donor appreciation event
  • Three guest passes to invite friends and family to the JCCNS
  • Gold key card
  • $100 gift card to use toward a variety of JCCNS programs or classes
  • JCCNS swag annual gift

The charitable donation portion of your Chai membership is fully tax-deductible.
