JCC Kehilla Program

Are you considering becoming a member of the JCC of Dallas and a local synagogue? Are you new to the area? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions and are between the ages of 18 and 35, the Kehilla Program may be right for you!

The Kehilla program is designed to encourage young individuals and families to engage in the community by joining both the JCC of Dallas and a participating temple/synagogue of their choice.

Kehilla Program Policies

  • Only individuals where both parties are 35 years old or younger are eligible to participate.
  • If a member turns 35 during the first year of the Kehilla program, they will be eligible for that year only. For family pricing, this applies to the entire family since both parties are required to be 35 or younger to be entitled to the second year in the Kehilla program.
  • Kehilla members not turning 35 in the first year may participate in the program for a maximum of two consecutive one-year periods.
  • An individual or family may only participate in the program if they have never been members of the JCC of Dallas or a participating temple/synagogue on their own.
  • Kehilla membership does not include participation in preschool or camp. In order for a child to be enrolled in either of these programs, the family must have a Total J Membership.
  • Other discounted memberships, or membership specials, may not be used for a minimum of 12 months after participating in the Kehilla program.
  • Half of the yearly fee will go to the JCC of Dallas, and half will go to the participating synagogue/temple of choice. The payment method for the fee should be a Mastercard or Visa. The JCC will share this payment information with the synagogue/temple so they may charge their half of the fee.
