Find for yourself a rabbi (to support and teach you), take for yourself a friend (to do mitzvot together), and judge each member of the community for their merit.
(Pirkei Avot 1:6)
Membership is an opportunity to develop friendships, learn, become involved in your heritage, and support the only LGBT synagogue in the Washington, DC area. Come join us!
To join Bet Mishpachah as a member is easy. The Membership Information Guide provides important information on the benefits of membership.
You can download and mail a paper membership form. This form consists of two pages: an information form and a dues form. Note that Bet Mishpachah offers special dues rates for full-time students, young adult members, new members, and those living outside the Washington/Baltimore area. Reduced dues are available for those who cannot afford the full amount. No one is denied membership for financial reasons. Mail membership forms and check to: Bet Mishpachah, Dept 0520, Washington DC 20073-0520.
Members may use the Yarzeit Form to update their list of loved ones they wish to be mentioned at our services.
Member benefits end at the end of the membership year. If you have difficulty in renewing your membership for any reason, please contact the Vice President for Membership. The benefits of membership will not cease in the event that a member, due to age or health-related reasons, moves into an assisted living facility, is otherwise limited in his/her ability to fully participate in the activities of daily living, and/or is unable to renew his/her membership.
