Welcome to Temple Micah


Learn more about Temple Micah.


Our Micah

As a spirited congregation led by a visionary rabbi, we are unafraid to break the mold to create a Judaism infused with meaning and relevance. Together, we attempt to answer the question of what it means to live a fully American and a fully Jewish life. Temple Micah is a welcoming Jewish home where you can bring your whole self and be your best self. We approach our Judaism with a lightness of heart and a sense of humor. In everything we do, we challenge ourselves to do better. To us, Reform is a verb.

Looking for God in Washington, DC: A Priest and a Rabbi Search Together

Beginning January 15, join us as we commence a four session weekly class co-taught by The Very Reverend Gary Hall, Dean of the National Cathedral, and Rabbi Zemel.

Purchase Mishkan HaNefesh, the new Reform Machzor, by January 15

As we announced during our High Holy Day services, this year was the last year that we used Gates of Repentance as our Holy Day Machzor. A year from now, the Reform Movement will be moving to a new machzor, Mishkan HaNefesh, the High Holy Day companion prayerbook to our Shabbat prayerbook, Mishkan T'fillah. To get your copy, please place your order using this form by January 15.
