If you are not on a payment plan, 50% of current dues and all old balances are due and payable by August 29, 2024, in order to receive High Holy Day tickets. The balance of dues is payable by December 31, 2024. Payment plans must be renewed each year.


High Holy Day Tickets:

In order to receive your High Holy Day tickets, 50% of your membership dues must be paid by August 29, 2024, OR a payment plan must be established by August 29, 2024.

E-checks, personal checks, or credit cards may be used to pay your dues; see options below.


  • • Pay 2024-25 membership dues in full before August 29, 2024.
  • • Pay 50% of 2024-25 membership dues by August 29, 2024, and 50% by December 31, 2024.
  • • Set up a payment plan for 2024-25 membership dues on and pay in installments of your choosing (see notes about payment plans below).

**Payment plans must be renewed each year**

If you choose to pay 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 plans do NOT automatically renew. A new plan must be established for the 2024-25 fiscal year even if we have payment information on file.
  2.  If a payment plan for ECC or Religious School tuition has already been set up for 2024-25, that payment plan does NOT include payments for 2024-25 membership dues; a separate or new payment plan will need to be established. If you would like to add your membership dues to your already existing payment plan for tuition, please contact the Main Office to make these arrangements.  You will not be able to do this on your own.  



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


  1. From the “My Account” drop-down menu, click “Pay My Bill.” You will see your current charges listed.


  1. Under “Pay this amount,” you can choose to pay “Once Now,” “Once Later,” or select the number of payment installments you’d prefer. Then click “Continue to Payment.”


  1. On the payment screen, you can then enter the e-check or credit card information you’d like to use.
