HELPFUL HINTS FOR FIRST-TIME VISITORS

We’re glad you’re thinking about joining us!

  • On Friday evenings, we meet in the Gathering Space directly outside of Covenant Hall. We begin our services promptly at 7:30 PM.  After services, we have an oneg  reception with the blessings over the wine and challah and enjoy each other’s company and light snacks. 
  • On Saturday mornings, our services begin promptly at 10 30 AM, and are followed by a small kiddush with blessings over the wine and challah.
  • Our services are generally 1.5 hours. 
  • BJC is informal and most attend wearing casual respectful attire. We have tallitot (prayer shawls) and kippot (skullcaps) available. Both are optional, but you will find most men wearing kippot. We do tend to dress up for High Holy Days. 
  • We are located at 6601 Bradley Blvd; Bethesda, MD 20817. We have permanent shared space with Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church, and have our own designated sanctuary, Covenant Hall.  Parking is ample and free; park in the front or on the side near the playground. Ramps are available at the side door next to the church offices and near Memorial Hall. Check with the office for details so we can be certain those doors are unlocked.
  • We are delighted to have children of all ages attend our services.  At High Holy Days, we provide babysitting during the traditional services. 
  • Other questions:  call the office at 301-469-8636.
