Visit on Shabbat
- Chesed Committee — volunteer to help members who are ill or in need of assistance. That could include a casserole or a ride to services, or even just a friendly phone call.
- Bereavement Committee — being on call to assist members who have lost a loved one. You might provide information on funeral options, for example, or help bring prayerbooks to the shiva house. Small things, but enormously helpful at difficult time.
- Tikkun Olam Committee — come to monthly meetings and get involved with any of our upcoming activities.
- Membership Committee — do you have expertise with social media or good marketing skills? Or broad networks of contacts? We could use your help getting the word out about Shirat HaNefesh and our events.
Or be a Shabbat Sponsor! The best way to get involved in Shirat HaNefesh is to pitch in and sponsor a Friday night oneg or Shabbat morning kiddush. We’ll help guide you on what’s involved — basically, setup, providing light refreshments, and cleanup. And you’ll totally feel like a mensch!

Become a Member
An annual membership for a household with one adult is $1,000. For a household with two adults, annual membership is $2,000. The annual membership includes High Holy Day tickets for the family plus full membership rights.
Associate memberships are designed only for those whose main affiliation is to another congregation, but who also wish to belong to the Shirat HaNefesh community. The $400 annual associate membership dues give associate members full access to Shirat HaNefesh religious and social activities, excluding High Holy Day services. Associate members cannot vote at community meetings, and we encourage all associate members who are regularly active in our community to become full members.
No one is turned away from membership for financial reasons. Please contact our Membership Chairman (email@example.com), to discuss your situation in confidence.
