Shabbat Morning, Sept. 23:  Shabbat Shuvah

Join Rabbi Gilah and Hazzan Ramón for our Shabbat Shuvah service, beginning at 9:30 a.m. The Torah portion is Haazinu / Listen!  For this Sabbath of Return, we’ll be exploring the nature of apologies — What’s a good apology and what’s a lousy one?  How do we react when someone apologizes to us?  What do we do when no one apologizes? and more.

Searching for a new Jewish home?  It’s all about the music!

Shirat HaNefesh (Song of the Soul) is a “come as you are” Jewish community drawing folks from Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Takoma Park, Bethesda, Rockville, Potomac, and D.C.

Soulful, spiritual; singing together; intimate, informal, accepting, laid-back. …we attract seekers from all backgrounds. If you’re Jewish, or interested in Judaism, perhaps part of an interfaith family, and want to try things on for size – this is the place.

We fill our services with beautiful music, led by our extraordinary hazzan (cantor), and consider no question too foolish to ask or discuss with our rabbi.  Bring your cup of coffee and your kids – we delight in their presence – you’ll never be “shushed” with us!

All who are “on a Jewish path” are welcome. Shirat HaNefesh is home to a diverse range of individuals and families, including interfaith and LGBTQ singles and families.

Check out our religious school! Please visit us any Shabbat morning, 10:30-12:00 noon, when school is in session (check our online calendar).
