Welcome to Congregation Beth El

Congregation Beth El is a growing, vibrant conservative synagogue in Bethesda, Maryland, located only seven miles from the heart of Washington, DC.

We cherish our sense of community. We worship soulfully. We celebrate joyously. We comfort sensitively. We learn continuously. We dialogue respectfully. We are egalitarian, inclusive, innovative, and participatory. We are a singing congregation.

Our clergy inspire and empower us to marry modernity and Jewish tradition as we create diverse paths to spiritual fulfillment, social action, and securing peace and security for our brothers and sisters in Israel.

We welcome you to join us for an hour, a lifetime, or anything in between.
