Rabbi's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Congregation B'nai Tzedek. We are a vibrant, unique and dynamic synagogue, which is proud of the wide variety of programs and activities we offer.  We are a Conservative congregation affiliated with the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism.

Permeating the atmosphere is the warm feeling of community, evident at our worship services and in the ways that members help and care for each other in times of need. We offer excellent educational programs for both children and adults as well as a myriad of opportunities to do Tikun Olam and to come together for socializing.  We are a community of communities, with many groups such as Brotherhood, Sisterhood and Hazak, and we welcome you into our family.

Starting in the Fall of 2014, Congregation B'nai Tzedek (CBT) is launching a one-year pilot program to encourage new families to build connections to other young families, to the B'nai Tzedek community, and to the greater Washington-area Jewish community. To achieve this, the members of CBT have created an endowment fund to reduce preschool tuition for new CBT families by 50% in exchange for a commitment to perform 10 hours/month of meaningful activities within CBT. Future funding is dependent upon the success of the program. We are very excited about this new initiative and hope our current families will help spread the word to friends and family. Existing GECC families will receive a 50% reduction in enrichment and after-care classes next year, as our preschool expands to offer full-day coverage. Please click here for more information on the Community Builders Program. Click here to read an article from the January 16th issue of The Washington Jewish Week on B'nai Tzedek's new program.
