When & Where
Machar: The Washington DC Congregation for Secular Humanistic Judaism
Our congregation, founded in 1977, is part of the national and international Secular Humanistic Judaism movement through our affiliation with the Society for Humanistic Judaism. We develop and conduct services for Shabbat and other Jewish Holidays and life-cycle milestones that clearly express our Secular and Humanistic outlook. In our Jewish Cultural School we teach our children to have pride in their Jewish heritage and to have respect for all peoples. Our members participate in a variety of community service and social action activities that transform our philosophy into reality.
