An independent Jewish congregation welcoming all without regard to gender, race, creed, color, religious background, sexual orientation, or origin.
Wednesday, March 29, 7-9 pm
Adas Israel Congregation, 2850 Quebec Street NW
Be part of a delegation from Bethesda Jewish Congregation to sound a rallying cry to the leadership of our country to continue welcoming those seeking refuge. As tens of thousands of victims of violence and persecution are turned away from safety in the United States, we know that our community cannot stand idly by. Join refugee speakers, policy experts, elected officials, and faith leaders to be part of a powerful Jewish voice in support of today’s refugees.
Convened by HIAS — the world’s oldest, and only Jewish, refugee organization — along with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington, Adas Israel Congregation, and numerous co-sponsors.

The Passover Seder celebrates the journey of the Jewish people, and, by extension, all humanity, from slavery to freedom. The rituals and story express our universal yearning for liberation and lives filled with meaning. Join the members of BJC, Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church, Idara e Jaferia, and the Islamic Community Center of Potomac for a community Seder and dinner utilizing a new Haggadah created by Rabbi Schnitzer, specifically for interfaith use.
