Welcome to Our Synagogue
Bet Mishpachah is the Washington DC area congregation for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Jews and all who wish to participate in an inclusive, egalitarian, and mutually supportive community. Our membership is comprised of singles, couples, and families, and is open to everyone, regardless of religious affiliation, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Our services at the Washington DC JCC (corner of 16th & Q St NW - enter on Q Street) are participatory, inviting, and personal, and we use gender-neutral and inclusive language. Service leading rotates between Rabbi Green and our talented lay leaders. Erev Shabbat services begin at 8:00 pm every Friday and Shabbat Morning services begin at 10:00 am on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month.
Our cultural, social, and educational, and programs, coordinated by program director Sharon Greenbaum and dedicated committee leaders, are open to all, members and non-members, friends and guests.
