Gift of Membership

We want to make joining a synagogue easy. Come spend some time with us.  Become a member this year with no membership dues, and feel the difference it makes belonging to the Temple Shalom family. Get to know the people and ruach (spirit). Experience the services and learning opportunities.

We know it can take time to get to know a new community. That’s why we want you to participate fully in all temple programs for the first year without having to pay membership dues. Following the first year, our membership dues policy is a Fair-Share system. All members also enjoy member-only tuition discounts for Religious and Hebrew School.

Please call the Temple Office at (301) 587-2273 or email Toby Lowe and Jenna Landy at, the Co-Chairs of our Prospective Member Committee, with any questions.

The Gift of Membership Program offers:

  • Free one year membership to Temple Shalom (through June) with all accompanying member privileges.
  • Tickets to High Holy Day services.
  • Member-only discounts for Religious School and Hebrew School.
  • The opportunity to take time and get to know Temple Shalom.

Following the first year, our membership dues policy is a Fair Share system.
