Sustain our community with membership

Shaare Zedek is where traditional Jewish practice, spiritual life, and community all come together. Anyone, regardless of their background or experience, can find a home at Shaare Zedek.

We invite you to support and invest in our mission through membership. Our membership year runs from July through June. Please click on the buttons below to submit your membership application or renewal information, and to learn more about our dues requirements.

Please note that Shaare Zedek’s leadership has been in discussion with Kehilat Hadar since Fall 2018 to consider an integration of our two communities. In July 2019, the membership of both communities approved an arrangement for joint operations which will begin on Shabbat Bereishit in late October 2019. A merger of our two organizations will not be decided on until some time after the new building at 212 W. 93rd Street is completed. Even as we begin joint operations with Kehilat Hadar later this year, we will maintain our existing structure as a separate entity with our own membership and governance. Please read more about this new and exciting arrangement here.

Shaare Zedek is here to give you:

  • Joyful and traditional celebrations of Shabbat and holidays

  • Intellectual and spiritual challenges, helping you find inspiration and purpose in Jewish texts and wisdom

  • Engaging educational experiences that nurture your children to embrace their Jewish heritage

  • Guidance and support in Jewish ritual life and spirituality -- year-round and in times of need

  • Access to a fully-egalitarian, lay-led minyan when you need it -- throughout the week and throughout the year

We invite all prospective members to connect with our Vice President of Membership, Lianna Levine Reisner, to learn more about our community.
