Policies & Code of Conduct
You can freeze your membership once a year for 1, 2 or 3 months. Visit our Service Desk to fill out a freeze form.
We hope you’ll never have to cancel! If you do need to go, please stop by our Service Desk and fill out a cancellation form.
You can do this anytime within your final month to avoid being charged for the following month. (For example, let us know by September 30th to avoid a charge for October). Cancellations or refunds for Annual Memberships are not accepted.
You may add or subtract people from your membership at any time. Upgrading or downgrading changes your monthly rate but there are no fees to change your membership type. You can do this any time before the end of the month at the Service Desk.
Monthly Membership dues are charged to a credit card, debit card or checking account on the first of every month. Any changes to accounts must be completed before the 1st of every month in order to take place for next month.
Guest Passes & JCC Guest Privileges
Members are entitled to Guest Passes for friends and neighbors. Please contact the Service Desk for Guest Passes. In addition, as a courtesy, your membership will be honored at most Jewish Community Centers (JCCs), excluding New York City.
