Dear Sir(s) / Madam(s),

Being of the Hebrew Faith, I am applying for a Membership in the Corporation of Spanish & Portuguese, Shearith Israel of Montreal.

I understand that this application is subject to approval by the Board of Trustees of the Synagogue. To that end, I am enclosing a Membership application form that I have completed as fully as possible.

If approved, I shall abide by the By-Laws of the Congregation, a summary of the salient points of which I have received and a full copy of which is available for our review at the Synagogue office.

Should my application be accepted, I acknowledge that my membership in the Synagogue is continuous from year to year as long as I am in good standing and pay all fees as they become due. However, should I wish to cancel my membership, I agree to notify in writing in which case my membership will terminate at the end of the Congregational year in question.
