Sustaining Membership

Choosing to become a Sustaining Member at Washington Hebrew is both an act of tzedakah and a reflection of faith in our shared Jewish future.

You understand the value of our sacred community. Now, you can “pay it forward” to enable Washington Hebrew to welcome all who are interested in membership no matter their financial circumstances.

Make Your Impact Felt

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and to help WHC transition to the new dues model, we introduced Sustaining Membership in July 2020.

With our official launch of Congregational Commitment, we are delighted to share that we are adding two additional Sustaining Member levels: Patron ($3,600) and Pillar ($5,000). By choosing to become a Sustaining Member, your Congregational Commitment may not change much from what you paid under the fair share model; however, the impact of your generosity will be felt by so many.

If your current fair share dues fall within one of our new Sustaining Membership levels, you are already helping sustain our congregation!

You Can Make a Difference

By choosing to become a Sustaining Member, your Congregational Commitment may not change much from what you paid under the fair share model; however, the impact of your generosity will be felt by so many.

Please help us build the critical foundation needed to make the new Congregational Commitment model a success by selecting a Sustaining Membership level near or above your current level of support.

We are so very grateful for the exceptional generosity of the following families who have chosen to become Sustaining Members for the 2020-2021 fiscal year.

Their generosity is making it possible for WHC to launch the complete Congregational Commitment model now.

We invite you to join this group and become a Sustaining Member at whatever level is comfortable for you and your family.
