Membership Contribution

Membership at Shearith Israel is open to all Jewish people and their spouse/partner and children. People of other faiths may be included in a Family Membership if their spouse/partner is Jewish.  Membership rates are calculated based on the age of the oldest Jewish adult family member and the number of adults in the membership. All children under age 24 are included in a membership.  Membership rates span a one-year period of our fiscal year from July 1 – June 30.  Once you become a member, your membership and billing remain intact year over year unless you inform Shearith Israel that you no longer want to remain affiliated.

Membership at Shearith is an investment in the vibrant, warm and diverse community that we are building together.  From lower ticket prices for programs, to Rabbinic support for life cycle events, your membership not only supports programs, classes and initiatives, but also makes them accessible to our members. Your spiritual growth and connection to a community is important to us.

Below are a list of membership levels available to all members of our community. 
Please select the membership level for you or your family. There are no financial barriers when it comes to joining our Shearith family. If you want to have a confidential conversation regarding your dues, feel free to reach out to our director fo membership.  Our dues rates are listed on our website.

Membership Types 

Please keep in mind that all membership rates include High Holiday seating for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, except for Associate Membership.  As part of your membership commitment, a $100 security fee is billed yearly to help cover the ongoing cost of security needs.

​Benefactor – We offer four levels of Benefactor dues; Mensch, Supporter, Partner and Patron. Our voluntary Benefactor structure helps us provide assistance to those who cannot contribute at the full dues level. It is our hope that members who are financially able will choose one of our Benefactor dues levels.
Individual – Single member with or without children. It includes one High Holy Day seat in designated location based on membership level chosen.
Family – Married couple or two individuals living together in a partnered relationship, with or without children. It includes two High Holy Day seats in designated location based on membership level chosen.
Kehilla – Join the JCC and Congregation Shearith Israel for one affordable price. If you are a young adult between the ages of 21-35, you can take full advantage of the Kehilla program, a partnership between the Aaron Family Jewish Community Center of Dallas and Congregation Shearith Israel.  Members will receive seating for the High Holy Days in Kaplan Auditorium.* The Kehilla program is a unique way to become involved in the greater Jewish community. Participants receive full membership privileges to the JCC, including the fitness center, as well as at Shearith. For more information, please contact the JCC Membership Department at  214-739-2737.
Associate Membership – For those who belong to several synagogues or live beyond commuting distance of Shearith Israel but wish to remain connected to our community. 
Married By Clergy – If you have been married by one of our clergy members, you qualify for this great membership. Members will receive one complimentary year of membership with High Holy Day seats in Kaplan Auditorium*.
Choose Your Dues – Are you new to the area? Or are you under the age of 30? You can then take advantage of our new membership option! If you are new to the area and our Synagogue, you will receive this option for one year. If you are under the age of 30, you will receive this membership until you turn 30! Members will be able to name their price with us, and receive a High Holy Day ticket in Kaplan Auditorium*.

High Holy Day Seating Location Options

Aaron Main Sanctuary - Permanent seating in our largest sanctuary
Main Foyer - Seating behind Aaron Main Sanctuary in front of Kaplan Auditorium
Kaplan Auditorium - Extension of seating behind Main Foyer and Aaron Main Sanctuary*
Beck Family Sanctuary - Permanent seating in our smaller sanctuary (limited seating available)
Beit Aryeh - Sanctuary at Levine Academy located north of our campus 

*Our Kaplan Auditorium or Beit Aryeh seating location is included in memberships for those under age 40, Kehilla member, and those in their complimentary year after being married by our clergy.  For an additional cost, our members under age 40 can upgrade to Aaron Main Sanctuary or Beck Family Sanctuary based on availability, and would pay the difference between Kaplan seating and the seating chosen.   For members over 40, our membership rate is set based on which seating location is chosen for their high holy day seating. Please note that no one will be turned away due to financial constraints.
