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.

Make Your Impact Felt

As a Sustaining Member, your generosity will ensure that young families, seniors, and other current members can maintain a lifelong connection to WHC at a support level that is affordable to them. Your generosity also will help to make joining our sacred community more attractive and accessible for new members. By making this choice, you will inspire others in our community to join the ranks of Sustaining Members and support our shared Jewish future.

Membership contributions provide approximately 50% of WHC’s budgeted annual revenues and are essential to our ability to continue to serve our congregation with the high caliber of programming, pastoral care, education, worship, and other activities that are hallmarks of WHC. Your support of the Congregational Commitment model has never been more critical, and we hope we can count on you to join us in taking this exciting step forward in the life of WHC.

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.

You Can Make a Difference

We hope we can count on you for WHC and its mission by choosing to be a Sustaining Member. Your decision to “pay it forward” and support WHC at a Sustaining level is essential to our ability to fund our annual operations at their current, outstanding level and to ensure we can be a welcoming and inclusive community.

Select your level of Sustaining Membership here.

We are so very grateful for the exceptional generosity of the following individuals, couples, and families who have chosen to become Sustaining Members for the 2023-2024 congregational year.

We invite you to become a Sustaining Member and add your name to this growing list.
