During this season of uncertainty and social distancing, one constant that will sustain the Greater Washington Jewish community is our ability to connect with one another. When we make the effort to reach out to our friends, family, and neighbors—locally, in Israel, and around the world—we can continue to build and strengthen all that makes Jewish Greater Washington an incredible community.
Our partner agencies, organizations, synagogues, and schools across DC, MD, and Northern VA are coming together to create opportunities for our entire community in new, dynamic, and innovative ways. It’s truly inspiring to see our community come together in this way. We are working to ensure that everyone can continue to engage and thrive Jewishly online. We will continue to connect with purpose through virtual spaces – even when we cannot connect in person.
This resource center will continue to grow and evolve as new opportunities to connect and engage are developed and shared across the community. Whether you’re looking for a way to engage with ritual or spiritual content; resources to share with your family; entertainment, virtual volunteering, or learning opportunities; our Jewish community has you covered.
