Relying on dues payments for our services, activities and special events, we count on members as an important and integral part of the Or Emet family. There are significant benefits associated with an Or Emet membership. If you have participated in some of our events, we hope you enjoyed both ambitious and successful programs, and the opportunity to meet and congregate with other stimulating and inspiring folks.

While Or Emet turns no one away, we have strived to keep our dues obligations very reasonable.  Membership dues are fully tax deductible.  Further information about Or Emet’s programs and events can be found in our Online Calendar and the Illuminator newsletter.
