The Mission of Washington Hebrew Congregation
  • Washington Hebrew Congregation provides a spiritual, educational, and cultural home for Jews of all ages in the Washington metropolitan area. We are a House of Prayer for those seeking comfort and spiritual renewal; a House of Learning for those seeking answers; and a House of Assembly offering a myriad of programs to meet the needs of a diverse community and to champion Judaism’s enduring commitment to social justice. Washington Hebrew Congregation strives to provide a life-long innovative, supportive, and caring Jewish environment. Our commitment to Reform Judaism reinforces the positive empowering elements of Jewish life and history that will ensure our continuity from generation to generation.
Fair Share Contribution
  • At Washington Hebrew Congregation membership dues are determined by a sliding scale schedule that is based on financial ability, calculated from gross annual household income received from all sources (earned and unearned). The schedule contained in this packet indicates the Fair Share contribution and Capital Fund pledge for each income level. Please look over the enclosed schedule and determine your appropriate Fair Share contribution. If you have a question about your Fair Share level or would like to discuss ways to fulfill your Fair Share contribution, please contact Lindsay Fry Feldman, our Director of Member Services at 202-895-6321 to arrange for a confidential interview with a representative of our Membership Committee.
