Membership Renewal

Membership renewal season is now open.

We are so grateful and glad that you have made BJ your spiritual home. Your membership is essential to keeping our community strong and helps to cover the costs of general operations, innovative programming, and other expenses that come with maintaining a large nearly 100-year-old campus in New York City.

Last year we introduced a new online membership process, which we have been optimizing over the last 12 months. 

On June 4, current members received a personalized email with a link to renew. All you have to do is review your pre-filled personal information and make any corrections, answer a few additional questions, and click ‘submit.’ You’ll be able to pay with your credit card, set-up a payment plan, or send in a check. Prefer a less technological approach?  You’ll have the option to renew by phone or in person if you choose.

If you haven’t received an email, contact Lucretia John, our Interim Membership Operations Manager. She’s here to help!

What’s new on the membership form?

We’ve made some changes to the renewal process based on feedback we got from you last year. Some of what you’ll see:

  • You will be prompted to enter your name and email address on the first page of the renewal form. As an enhanced security measure, you will then receive an automated email with your personal link to complete the renewal process.
  • This year’s form is shorter and easier to complete—you will have the opportunity to review the information we have on file, but you don’t need to tell us the same information you told us last year.
  • After renewing your membership, you will receive a separate email with instructions on how to select your preferred High Holy Days service location(s), and how to let us know about the ways you want to get involved at BJ this year.
