Washington Hebrew Congregation offers a number of ways for you to enhance your knowledge of Judaism.
Explore why we do what we do as Jews, find the sources for our traditions, and delve into the origins for these ideas with Back to Basics.
Every Shabbat morning at 9:00 am, we begin the day with an informal group at Temple to study parashat hashavua, the weekly Torah portion, in English. Led by one of the clergy, we analyze, question, and reflect on Judaism’s central text. All are welcome — just occasionally or every week — and absolutely no background knowledge or familiarity with Hebrew is necessary!
Looking to learn Hebrew or improve your fluency skills? WHC has two options to get you on track to speaking Hebrew.
