Become a Member

At Adas Kodesch Shel Emeth, we recognize the challenge of making a “synagogue decision.” That’s why we’ve established a policy providing a FREE first year membership to ALL new members.
In addition, we have two heavily discounted membership categories to benefit young professionals and growing families. It’s never too early to become a member.
Come to services, classes, or other activities. Experience the warmth of our congregation.

Please call office manager Kathleen Taylor at 302-762-2705 or send her an e-mail at to request that someone contact you about membership.
