Searching for a New Jewish Home?

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, 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. 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, including interfaith families.
