Description: Meet at the entrance to the Arlington National Cemetery metro stop at 5:15. We will walk to a pre-selected spot in the Cemetery for a short service to honor our country and those who have given their lives in defense of freedom.
Description: The gap between rich and poor in the District of Columbia is wider than in almost any other major U.S. City. Ed Lazere of Temple Micah and the DC Fiscal Policy Institute will highlight the latest numbers, and then discuss various options for increasing incomes and economic opportunities for residents being left behind.
Description: Join old friends, make new friends on Friday after services. Meet in the lobby, and we will all head to a local restaurant. No need to plan ahead: if you don't have plans for Shabbat dinner, please join us!
Description: The Erev Tisha B'Av service commemorates not only the destruction of the ancient Temples in Jerusalem but disasters through the ages up to modern times, and celebrates our survival through them all. The lights in the sanctuary are dim; we sit close to the floor (on cushions or low chairs) and read by candle light. Parts of the book of Lamentations (Eicha) are chanted and we read poetry and inspirational stories. It is very moving and peaceful. Please come.
