Beth Chai: The Greater Washington Jewish Humanist CongregationBeth Chai: The Greater Washington Jewish Humanist Congregation

Beth Chai Jewish Humanist Congregation of Greater Washington is a unique community that enjoys the full participation of believers and non-believers alike. We treat everyone in our congregation equally, including all members of interfaith families. We are part of the rich tradition of Judaism, drawing our strength from the vast repository of Jewish sources. Our congregation provides an opportunity for the public celebration of Jewish holidays and life-cycle events, as well as monthly Shabbats.

We also have regular educational and cultural programs for adults and children through our Sunday family school, and we prepare for Bar and Bat Mitzvah. We invite you to join this independent community and help us explore, study, and celebrate our Jewish heritage.
