Congregation Adat Reyim is a welcoming, caring congregation in wooded Fairfax County, Virginia, a short drive from Washington, D.C. From our name — which means a “community of friends ”— to our inclusive approach to Judaism, this is a place you can feel at home. Our independent congregation draws on the richness of Jewish tradition and respects the many ways our diverse community members connect to each other and the Divine.
Join us on a Friday night, and you will be personally welcomed. Come on Saturday morning, and you will be offered an honor and invited to lunch. Bring the kids to our religious school, our preschool, a Family & Friends Service, or any service – and they will be part of our family. Take part in an Adult Education program and share your ideas and perspectives – we will listen. Join in a social action program that supports our broader community and our world. Whether you enjoy the traditional harmonies of a choir, or the ruach of our Spirit of Shabbat service with guitars and more, or a moving string quartet sharing Kol Nidre, there is music to inspire you.
We value those who have been with us for years and those who have just joined; individuals, couples and families; multi-racial and multi-cultural families; interfaith families; individuals who are LGBTQ+ and straight; Jews by birth and by choice — you are all part of our community.
We are small enough to know each other and large enough to be a thriving community! Get to know us so we can get to know you.
