You are Welcome!

Congregation Dorshei Tzedek is a diverse and welcoming community. We welcome all those who share our Core Values. This includes all those who identify as Jewish, and non-Jews who are parents of or partners of Jews, or are in the process of conversion. 

We encourage people who are interested in joining our vibrant, participatory congregational life to spend some time with us: come to services, attend an adult education event, or visit our religious school. Many of our member households have found us through friends, our welcoming and engaging High Holy Day services, or when seeking out a religious school for their children. 

To start the process of exploring membership with CDT, please contact our VPs of Membership, Carole Slipowitz and Marjorie Salvodon, at Once you are ready to join, Carole and Marjorie will guide you through the next steps. 

Members Meetings

Members Meetings are held three times a year. We urge every household to send at least one representative. The meetings are wonderful opportunities to meet other members, learn about what is going on in the congregation, participate in discussions about the future of Dorshei Tzedek, and vote on issues brought to the membership. They are for members only.


Our dues structure is comprised of two parts. The first part is a fixed amount, which represents a hetzi-shekel (from Exodus). The second part is based on a percentage of household income. New members (or members returning after 10 years or more) pay half-dues for their first year. Learn more in About Our Dues.


Like most non-profit organizations, we do not raise all of our operating costs through our dues collection. Each year we hold a nediv lev campaign inviting all households to contribute beyond their dues. Nediv lev means ‘gift of the heart.’ We hope that all members will contribute what they can.
