About Our Congregation:
As the oldest Reform congregation in Northern Virginia (founded in 1871) with a robust tradition of volunteer support, our strengths are numerous. We are a warm, intergenerational community that cares deeply about social justice and civic engagement. We are proud of what we have accomplished, and we are committed to experimenting with bold new programs. Education begins with our in-house preschool, run jointly with the JCCNV, and continues through a dynamic religious school, post-b’nei mitzvah education, and adult education. We are sensitive to the needs of our intergenerational community, and we take responsibility for the world through tikkun olam and tzedakah.
Being welcoming is our starting point. We recognize that becoming an inclusive Jewish community is a constant process upon which we focus our lens, striving to include interfaith families, single-parent families, LGBTQ families and individuals, racially and ethnically diverse Jewish families and individuals, Jews by choice, and congregants of all abilities in all that we do and all that we are.
When you join our staff, you join a small team of dedicated and passionate professionals who believe that talented individuals can accomplish great things. We share a vision of a “sacred Jewish community for all who seek connection, meaning and healing” and constantly look to make sure that everything we do is in alignment with this ideal.
