Congregational Commitment Selection

Fiscal Year 2022 - 2023

Please use this form to select your Congregational Commitment category for the current fiscal year, (July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023). 

If you would like more information about the various categories or have questions, we invite you to visit our website or contact WHC's Director or Member Engagement Jennifer Millstone at or 202-895-6328.


Our Congregational Commitment dues model includes three primary membership categories:  
  • Members have an annual Congregational Commitment of $2,800.
  • Young Members under 36 have lower Congregational Commitments—$180 or $360, depending on their age to make affiliation possible for those just starting out.
  • Sustaining Members are central to this model. They are congregants who provide annual support above our Member rate, enabling us to offer lower Member and Young Member options. 
We also have two alternative membership categories:
  • Non-Resident Members are longtime members who have moved away from the D.C. area. 
  • Dual Members maintain an affiliation with another house of worship.
Please choose your Congregational Commitment for the 2022-2023 fiscal year.

We are so very grateful for the generosity of our Sustaining Members. May we include your name on our website and in our Annual Report?

Young Members who are in a financial position to do so, can become "Patron" Sustaining Members with a Congregational Commitment of $1,800.

Annual Security Commitment
There is an annual security fee of $260 for Members and Sustaining Members, $36 for Young Members under 30, and $180 for Young Members ages 30–35.
This fee is included in the Congregational Commitment for Sustaining Members.

Capital Pledge 
New Members are asked to contribute $5,000 toward our Building Fund, which supports major facility upgrades and improvements not covered in the annual budget. The Capital Pledge can be paid over time, beginning with the second year of membership. Young Members do not pay a Capital Pledge.

No payment is needed at this time. You will receive a billing statement with information about our payment options and plans.

As a member of Washington Hebrew Congregation, I understand that I am making a full-year financial commitment to support the congregation. I further understand that the temple depends on this commitment, and I will fulfill my financial obligation on or before April 30, 2023. If I am unable to do so, I agree to contact the Temple’s Assistant Executive Director to make alternative payment arrangements.
