Our Buildings

Washington Hebrew Congregation (Temple)

In 1952, President Harry S. Truman laid the cornerstone of our present building, which was dedicated by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1955.

Expanded and renovated over the years, the Temple is nestled in between Rock Creek National Park and the residential neighborhood of McLean Gardens. In addition to multiple worship spaces, the building houses our Religious School, Edlavitch-Tyser Early Childhood Center, and several social halls and meeting spaces, which are ideal for receptions, celebrations, and parties.

Julia Bindeman Suburban Center (JBSC)

Dedicated in 1978, the Julia Bindeman Suburban Center was erected to meet the needs of our growing congregation, as members moved out of the District to the suburbs.

The building houses the Rabbi Joseph P. Weinberg Early Childhood Center and Religious School. In addition, many WHC auxiliaries hold social and educational programs at the facility.

The building also has social halls and reception areas available for rental.
