Update: USCJ Membership Reporting Form


We know these are difficult, unprecedented times. While we struggle with the challenges of being apart, we are stronger together as a network of nearly 600 synagogues across North America. We at USCJ are working hard to provide the expertise and resources to help you navigate the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities we are all facing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your USCJ membership dues give you access to a portfolio of programs and services, including:

  • Pandemic-specific resources including issue-based conferences and webinars, support for virtual programming, planning for the High Holidays, and guidelines for the reopening of physical spaces
  • Guidance, tools, and training in areas of financial sustainability, membership, relational Judaism, leadership development, security, fundraising, and more
  • Teen Engagement: Helping more than 12,000 teens connect to one another and acquire the skills and experiences to make Jewish choices as adults. USYfi — new USY virtual programming — is now available to keep our teens connected and engaged even when they can’t be together physically
  • Cost savings: Operational efficiency webinars, discount buying opportunities, and more

MRF: Flexible Options and Billing

In previous years, you would have received the Membership Reporting Form (MRF) in early June so that we could update your billing for the new fiscal year beginning on July 1. The MRF is used to calculate each synagogue’s dues based on a formula approved by you and your peers in the USCJ General Assembly.

This year, given the unique challenges we are all facing, there is an option to defer your MRF submission until October 30th. If you choose not to submit an MRF now, we will continue to invoice you based on last year’s MRF and then adjust your dues if needed when we receive this year’s MRF, on or before October 30th. Click here for this year’s MRF.

Note that the MRF form is now in digital format only.

Updated Dues Discount Policy

We are pleased to offer once again a 2.5% early payment discount for synagogues whose full dues are received no later December 31, 2020. In addition to a completed MRF, submission of the synagogue mailing list is required. Click here for the Mailing List Template.

For those paying monthly, we have also expanded our ability for synagogues to pay online, set up ACH or other recurring dues payments.

Questions about online payments, dues, or the MRF can be directed to Barry Mael ([email protected]) or Roumi Kovachev ([email protected]).
