Refund And Return Policy
Advance Registration for Events, Classes, and Pre-Shabbat Dinners
If you sign up for an event, class, or pre-shabbat dinner online, or if you call and ask that you be billed for an event, class, or pre-shabbat dinner, you will be charged for that event, class, or pre-shabbat dinner, whether or not you attend. Refunds will only be given if we receive notice of your need to cancel 24 hours in advance of the event, class, or pre-shabbat dinner.
Should the synagogue cancel an event, class, or pre-shabbat dinner due to weather or low attendance, your money will be refunded in full.

There is no refund given for donations to the synagogue.
