About Us

Fabrangen, meaning “bringing together in joy,” is an independent, participatory, and egalitarian Jewish community in Washington, D.C.  We are known for spirited, musical services led by our members, for deep discussions of the Torah, and for engagement in tzedakah and tikkun olam.  Founded in 1971, our 125 members live in DC, Maryland and Virginia. As a participatory community, we do not have professional clergy leaders, but instead cultivate the leadership capacities of our members, who lead our weekly Shabbat morning services as well as services on all major Jewish holidays.  Our High Holiday services have been open to all for decades and attract hundreds of participants.
