Adas Israel Congregation
Adas Israel, a historic Jewish synagogue in Washington DC, aspires to perpetuate Judaism, to enrich the lives of our members, and to celebrate Conservative Judaism at its creative best. The very name of our synagogue, inspired by Torah, means “congregation” as well as “community,” suggesting both our traditional roots and our contemporary mission. Since its founding in 1869 in Washington, D.C., Adas Israel has continued to evolve and expand as a congregation, as a community, and as an active congregational citizen of the national capital area. We value diversity in our members, in our services, and in our programs, while treasuring gifts of community and continuity.
