Membership in Shirat HaNefesh is open to all who are on a Jewish path or who have veered off a Jewish path and want to get back on. Our community currently numbers about 80 members/families, hailing mostly from Silver Spring, Takoma Park, Chevy Chase, Bethesda, D.C., Rockville and Potomac.

An annual membership for a household with one adult is $1,000. For a household with two adults, annual membership is $2,000. The annual membership includes High Holy Day tickets for the family plus full membership rights.

Associate memberships are designed only for those whose main affiliation is to another congregation, but who also wish to belong to the Shirat HaNefesh community. The $400 annual associate membership dues give associate members full access to Shirat HaNefesh religious and social activities, excluding High Holy Day services. Associate members cannot vote at community meetings, and we encourage all associate members who are regularly active in our community to become full members.

No one is turned away from membership for financial reasons. Please contact our Treasurer, David Lebow (, to discuss your situation in confidence.
