Our Mission

Washington Hebrew Congregation provides a spiritual, educational, and cultural home for Jews of all ages in the Washington metropolitan area.

We are a House of Prayer for those seeking comfort and spiritual renewal; a House of Learning for those seeking answers; and a House of Assembly offering myriad programs to meet the needs of a diverse community and to champion Judaism’s enduring commitment to social justice.

Washington Hebrew Congregation strives to provide a lifelong innovative, supportive, and caring Jewish environment. Our commitment to Reform Judaism reinforces the positive empowering elements of Jewish life and history that will ensure our continuity from generation to generation.

Adult Learning Early Childhood Religious School


We are honored to guide, celebrate, and support our members at every stage of their lives.

Whether you are welcoming a new member of your family, accompanying children on their journey through Jewish education, marking their passage to adulthood, exploring the possibility of becoming Jewish, facing illness and end-of-life issues, or celebrating other religious and secular milestones, our clergy and staff ensure that each family is guided through a meaningful engagement with Jewish tradition and is surrounded by a caring community.
