Bet Mishpachah

Bet Mishpachah is Washington's only Egalitarian Synagogue Embracing a Diversity of Sexual and Gender Identities, founded in 1975 by members of DC's LGBTQ+ community.


Bet Mishpachah is a congregation for gay, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, trans and queer Jews, our families, friends and allies and all who wish to participate in an inclusive, progressive, egalitarian, and mutually supportive community.

We hold services every Friday night at 7:45 PM and on the second and fourth Saturdays of every month at 10:00 AM.  While the Edlavitch Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Washington (our usual home) is being renovated this year, we're temporarily holding services across the street at Foundry United Methodist Church, 1500 16th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20036. To keep up with all our services and events, sign up for our weekly email
