If you are not on automatic payments, 50% of current dues and all old balances are due and payable by September 6, 2022 in order to receive High Holy Day tickets. Balance of dues is payable by December 31, 2022. Payment plans must be renewed each year.

PAYMENT GUIDELINES

In order to receive your High Holy Day tickets, at least 50% of your membership dues must be paid by September 6, 2022, with the balance paid by December 31, 2022, unless a payment plan is established by September 6, 2022. Payment plans must be renewed each year. E-checks, personal checks, or credit cards may be used to pay your dues; see options below.

PAYMENT OPTIONS

  • • Pay 2022-23 dues in full before September 6, 2022
  • • Pay 50% of 2022-23 dues before September 6, 2022 and 50% by December 31, 2022.
  • • Set up a payment plan for 2022-23 dues on www.agudath.org, and pay in installments of your choosing. (See notes about payment plans below.)
     

If you choose the option of paying dues and/or tuition with a credit card, a convenience fee of 3% will be charged with each payment. If you choose to pay by e-check or personal check, you will not be charged this fee.

Payment Plan Notes

  1. Payment plants do NOT automatically renew. A new plan must be established for the 2022-23 fiscal year.
  2. If a payment plan for ECC or Religious School tuition has already been set up for 2022-23, that payment plan did NOT include payments for 2022-23 dues; a separate or new payment plan for both will need to be established.

 

HOW TO SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN

  1. Go to www.agudath.org and log into your account by clicking the gray box in the top right-hand corner that says, “My CAI.” Once logged in successfully, the gray box will say, “Welcome [Name].” (If you forgot or do not know your password, simply click “Forgot Password” and you will be emailed a link to set up a new password).

 

  1. From the “My Account” dropdown menu, click “Pay My Bill.” You will see your current charges reflected.
