DC/MD/VA Community
Part of the East District

Serving Congregations in Maryland, Virginia, District of Columbia

Welcome to the DC/MD/VA Community! We are 45 congregations strong and we encompass all of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. We hold semi-annual meetings of our temple presidents and held our first day-long Shabbaton in May 2015. The topic was "Strengthening Congregations." Presidents and board members from more than half of our congregations attended a great day of lay-led worship, panel discussions, and a fascinating presentation on the future growth of world religions. We look forward to welcoming new congregational leaders to the Community as we go from strength to strength.
