Shalom. Our Program Guide puts it aptly: “B’nai Israel Congregation is a dynamic, warm, welcoming and inclusive Conservative Synagogue committed to the spiritual growth of our members. Our community is grounded in the core values of Judaism: study of our tradition, worship of God, social action and concerns for the needs of the Jewish people, here, in Israel and worldwide.”
Founded in 1925, B’nai Israel has been a major presence on the Washington Jewish scene for generations. Many factors distinguish B’nai Israel: my colleagues who comprise our talented staff, our visionary leadership, our active membership, our broad and creative programmatic scope, our magnificent physical facility, and last but certainly not least, our truly caring community which can be sustaining throughout life’s journey.
I hope that you will explore our B’nai Israel web-site to learn more details about our congregation . . . but even more importantly, I encourage you to be with us at B’nai Israel and to personally experience our uniqueness.
Our community joins me in eagerly awaiting your interest and your participation.
