Membership Application

Complete your Membership Application today!

Simply fill out the Sha’ar Zahav Membership Application below to apply for membership. 

If you have three or more adults in your family or more than two children, or if you wish to discuss membership please contact Heidy Ramirez Director of Engagement, at heidy@shaarzahav.org. Once you’ve submitted an application, you may set up an appointment to discuss membership by clicking here.

Unlike many other synagogues, we do not use a fee-for-service model or a flat fee membership model for new members. We do not ask you to share your financial information. Instead, we ask that you base your contribution on your own evaluation of your income/assets to give what is comfortable and feasible for you (a donation-based system). We hope you will consider a pledge based on what Sha’ar Zahav means to you now–and what it will mean to you in the years to come.
