Fees and Class Size
Membership in the Sephardic Community Center is a prerequisite for participation in almost every program. Certain programs, classes and events are open to non-members at a differential fee.

Cultural and informal education programs are offered throughout the year. Specialized activities such as Pre-school, Day Camp, educational courses, special children’s programs, concerts, etc. require additional fees. Members may be expected to bring additional materials to some classes.

In order to provide the fullest benefit to members, it is necessary to limit the size of certain groups. Registration will close when the maximum is reached. Additional groups will be formed if there are sufficient requests and if space allows.

In the event that registration requires 2 groups, groupings will be made by staff, taking into consideration the order of registration, requests and make-up of the group. The ultimate decision will be made by staff. There is no refund if there is a withdraws based on dissatisfaction with the group make-up. In the event that there is misrepresentation of age and grade, the SCC reserves the right to remove such individuals from the group and no refund will be made.

Membership Cancellation
The Sephardic Community Center reserves the right to revoke and/or suspend membership privileges at any time due to inappropriate or destructive behavior. Membership in the SCC is a privilege not to be misused. There will be no refunds made for revoked or suspended memberships.

If one withdraws during the first to weeks of classes, in addition tot he $25 administrative fee, 25% of the class fee will be withheld from refund.

Out Pre-school programs, Culinary School, and Summer Day Camp have separate refund policies.

Low Cost Accident Medical Insurance
All members participating in Sephardic Community Center activities must participate in a Special Group Insurance Plan, regardless of age or sex. The rate is $20 per membership year.
