Frequently Asked Questions
Payment information for new members
Membership at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is an annual membership based on a twelve-month commitment when you join, renewing after the first year on your anniversary date and every year after on September 1. Payments may be made in full via check or credit card for the entire amount each year. Alternatively, those electing to pay monthly via Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) or credit card will be charged August through July on an annual basis. The Board of Directors may elect to change the annual dues effective September 1 of each year, thus affecting the rate and/or processing fee for automatic one time or monthly payments.
No one is ever denied membership because of an inability to pay membership dues. If you have special circumstances, please call the Membership Director and request a confidential interview.
