Welcome to B’nai Israel!
Founded in 1925, B’nai Israel has been a major presence in the Washington area for generations. Our talented clergy and staff, creative and innovative programming, and magnificent facility are well known. Anyone who enters the building can sense our commitment to children and adults of all ages through our multiple weekly Shabbat Magic youth services, impressive schools and youth groups, and top-notch educational programs for adults.
But B’nai Israel is much more. We are a caring community that supports members in times of need and celebrates life’s joyous moments together. We inspire individuals and assist them in charting their own spiritual journeys. We engage in the larger community, doing our part to improve the world and sustain the institutions of Jewish life here and in Israel.
I invite you to explore our website to learn more about all that B’nai Israel has to offer. And I hope that you will be in touch … to tell us about yourself, ask questions, and be an integral a part of this special community.
We aspire to be your home for Jewish life.
More than 50 members of B’nai Israel attended this year’s Aipac Policy Conference, which emphasized the importance of bi-partisan support for the America-Israel relationship. Many of our delegates are pictured here.
