About Our Collection

Washington Hebrew Congregation is a sacred space. A place to reflect, learn, and acknowledge the wonders of our world. The walls of this beautiful Temple represent those values in our permanent collection of art. We are thrilled to present this remarkable collection that spans from the 16th Century to today, and features an array of styles, from realist to Dadaist, in a variety of media.

One of the most impressive aspects of this collection is the diverse range of artists represented here. From world-renowned names like Rembrandt, Dali, Chagall, Calder, and Warhol to lesser-known yet significant artists such as Walter Spitzer, Marcel Janco, and Jim Dine. In addition, this collection proudly showcases some remarkable local artists, including Sherry Zvares Sanabria, Carol Brown Goldberg, and Zachary Oxman.

Each piece in this collection is a testament to the transformative power of art, representing a unique expression of the human experience. As you explore, we hope these works will offer a glimpse into the profound beauty and rich cultural influence the Jewish people have brought to art and artists.
