BJC Gathers as Community 

As we have done many times before, BJC came together as a community in the wake of the riots at the US Capitol with songs and prayers of peace and healing led by Rabbi Sunny Schnitzer. 

Using Zoom provided a much-needed connection for so many on that day, when processing the day's events and our feelings and concerns for our community in the Nation's Capital, a place where so many of us work, live, and have family and friends.

Our programs enable everyone to engage fully with our traditions no matter their level of Jewish knowledge or practice. 


Join with us on your Jewish journey, and become part of our community.


In keeping with the recommended guidelines for social gatherings during this period of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in keeping with the Jewish view that gives primacy to preserving life, BJC has replaced all in-person gatherings at our building with virtual gatherings. Meetings with the Rabbi or administrative staff —where all parties are masked—may be made by appointment.

Join us on Zoom and live streaming where we will continue to support and uplift each other until we can meet in person again. Please read BJC Now, our newsletter, and refer to the calendar for details. Click here to subscribe to BJC Now.
