Payment Policies

Religious School tuition and fees, paid in full, are due with this registration form. If payment in full now presents a hardship, a deposit of one third the total amount due will be accepted. The balance will automatically be charged in two quarterly installments from the date of your first payment at the time of registration. Please contact Director of Education, Stephanie Ben Simon, with questions or concerns about fees or payment.


Limited scholarships are available. Scholarship money applies to tuition only. For scholarship forms, contact Stephanie Ben Simon. Families requesting scholarships are required to pay a $100 deposit upon registration, which will be credited towards the final tuition payment.


Temple Sinai Membership “in good standing” is required for enrollment. You must renew your Temple membership for the July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2010 fiscal year before Religious School begins. Your Temple Sinai membership must be “in good standing”. This means that you are current on any financial obligations to the Temple for previous membership pledges or school fees. No student may start Religious School until previous balances are cleared or until specific financial arrangements have been made in writing. If you have an outstanding balance or question about your Temple finances, please contact our Business Manager, Rhonda Hartman, at (510) 451-3263 x303.
