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.
WHC 175: Envision Our Future starts with several broad, but critical, questions: Where do we want to be in 10 years? What will we be as a Temple and as a Congregation? What role should WHC play in the lives of our members, in our community, and in Reform Judaism? We want to know what you envision for our future and what role you hope to play in WHC’s future!
In January, we began the process by gathering together diverse groups of congregants to discuss, brainstorm, and imagine their ideal futures at WHC. We hope to touch on all aspects of Temple life — worship, community and social life, social action, education, life cycle events, financial support, and more.
Two Visioning Workshops took place this winter where congregants had the opportunity to share their thoughts on WHC's future. If you would still like your voice to be heard, please contact Lindsay Fry Feldman, 202-895-6321.
