Menu Washington Hebrew Congregation


Washington Hebrew Congregation’s Brotherhood offers opportunities for friendship, spiritual growth, networking, volunteering, and discussing topics relevant to Jewish men.

Two of our annual highlights: the Interreligious Council's Thanksgiving meal and the softball season with our championship team, the Washington Hebrew Nationals. Join us to make a difference.

Community Thanksgiving Dinner


If you do not have plans for your Thanksgiving meal, we invite you to come to our Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday, November 28 at 12:00 pm at St. Alban's Episcopal Church

This event is sponsored by the Interreligious Council in partnership with WHC, Annunciation Catholic Church, and St. Alban's Episcopal Church,

Will you be in town on Thanksgiving? Before you sit down for your own dinner, please consider spending a couple of hours with us at Temple to help provide a festive Thanksgiving meal for others. Bring the family — there is something for everyone to do: cook or carve; set up or clean up; greet guests or serve the meal. Shifts begin as early as 9:00 am and everything is finished by around 1:30 pm.

We're Looking for a Few Good Softball Players…


WHC Brotherhood's softball teams, the Washington Hebrew Nationals and the Washington He'Brews, are looking for new players. We're looking for men ages 18 and over who are interested in playing doubleheaders on Sundays from 9:00 - 11:30 am. The season begins on Sunday, April 8 and runs through early July. Games are played on Montgomery County fields and everyone gets a turn at bat and in the field.
