Become a part of Washington Hebrew Congregation’s warm and nurturing community.
Our Temple is a welcoming family that enriches our spiritual, intellectual, and social lives. Caring and inclusive, we encourage the exploration of Reform Judaism and the deepening of faith. WHC provides a sense of belonging and community through our innovative services, comprehensive programming, and meaningful activities. We are singles, couples, seniors, and students. We are traditional and non-traditional, Jewish and interfaith families. Find a home at Washington Hebrew Congregation!
WHC offers a warm and welcoming community where you can build a meaningful Jewish life. When you become a member of WHC, you become part of a vibrant and caring Jewish community that will allow you to grow spiritually and intellectually; enrich your Jewish identity; engage in meaningful acts of social justice; share holidays and joyous occasions with our multigenerational congregational family; rely on its support in times of need; and make lifelong friends.
At Washington Hebrew Congregation, membership is based on a fair-share policy. Members are asked to make an annual "Fair Share" contribution based on their own individual giving ability. No individuals or families will be denied membership due to financial circumstances.
Welcome to Washington Hebrew Congregation. We are delighted that you have chosen to become part of our community.
In 2027, just 10 years from now, WHC will celebrate 175 years of being one of the leading Reform congregations in the nation. This special anniversary gives us all the opportunity to consider the future for Washington Hebrew Congregation, and we would like our entire congregational family — members new and old, ECC families, 2239’ers, and Metro Minyan worshippers — to participate in this process.
Good Food. Good People. Good Conversation.
Are you a Temple member? Would you like to get to know our WHC President and other Temple members in a casual, meaningful way? We are trying something new this year and invite you to sign up to join WHC President David Astrove and his wife, Debbie, at their home for a Shabbat dinner.
Join us at Temple on Monday, June 5, 2017, at 7:00 pm for our Annual Meeting where new members of Washington Hebrew Congregation's Board of Directors will be installed.
