Menu Washington Hebrew Congregation

Simchat Torah

We celebrate this holiday at a congregational family Shabbat service with special Torah readings that enable everyone to see the readers complete the Torah and start anew with B'reishit! We parade and dance with the Torahs and consecrate our new Religious School students by calling them to the bimah for a special blessing.

Consecration & Block Party


Celebrate with us!

We mark the start of our students’ formal Jewish educational journey at Washington Hebrew Congregation with a special ceremony attended by parents, family, and of course, our WHC community.

The celebration continues with a community block party featuring a DJ, lawn games, adult study sessions, and food trucks. It's a morning not to be missed!

Date: Sunday, October 20
Time: Consecration at 10:00 am, Block Party at 11:00 am
Location: Temple (3935 Macomb St. NW)
