DUES

DC Minyan relies on its members to provide the services, events, and learning programs that sustain our strong and vibrant community. Because DC Minyan employs no professional staff, the membership funds we raise go directly toward DC Minyan’s significant ongoing expenses. The majority of DC Minyan’s funds go towards covering the cost of space rental for weekly programming and special events. Funds also pay for holiday programming, educational and social programming throughout the year, paying teachers and speakers, purchasing and maintaining ritual items, and providing materials for other DC Minyan events. All DC Minyan membership dues are a tax-deductible, charitable expense.

Our dues year begins in July and High Holidays tickets are included in the cost of membership. Members are billed for their dues prior to the High Holidays and those who join after Purim will have their dues prorated by half. We invite you to sign up for membership at any time during the year. 

The dues listed below are anchor points for each category of membership. We welcome greater contributions from those who are able to help support DC Minyan. 

Full-price membership dues to DC Minyan are:

  • $360 per adult, or $720 per couple

DC Minyan is an inclusive community, and absolutely no one will be denied membership because of difficulty in paying. If you are unable to pay the listed dues, contact the Steering Committee at sc@dcminyan.org and contribute whatever monetary amount you can.
