Membership Corner

We are so glad that you are considering membership at Ohr Kodesh Congregation. Our congregation has a small, intimate family feel. Through our extensive programming for children and adults, our members have an opportunity to learn and to socialize in structured and informal settings. We have warm, inviting Shabbat services that are well-attended. The connections made with other congregants turn into amazing life-long friendships.

As a new member, you will be invited to attend our annual New Member Brunch, a special reception at the home of Rabbi Fishman and his wife, Debra Rosenman. We can also pair you with a mentor family if requested. Home hospitality is an important part of our community and families get the chance to connect through these intimate Shabbat and holiday meals. Through these and other activities, we look forward to making you a part of our Ohr Kodesh family.

In the midst of the busy Washington, DC area, know that you have a second home at Ohr Kodesh and we look forward to welcoming you with open arms. Please don't hesitate to contact us to learn more about our synagogue, or to schedule a visit.

Ohr Kodesh is a warm and welcoming community. We strive to accommodate the needs of all families. If the payment of dues is a concern, we encourage you to contact Jerry Kiewe  at (240) 450-3486 to discuss the matter in confidence.
