Irene & Abe Pollin Music Program Initiative

Since 2012, the Irene & Abe Pollin Music Program Initiative has provided a broad range of special musical events to enhance our Shabbat worship experience. From an interfaith exploration of the Psalms to contemporary jazz, a cappella, and Middle Eastern music, our offerings are as special and diverse as Washington Hebrew is itself.
