Welcome to Kesher Israel
Kesher Israel, a modern Orthodox synagogue, is located in downtown Washington, DC, 14 blocks from the White House, and within 2 miles of the Capitol. Kesher is the only Orthodox synagogue in downtown DC.
- Everything you ever needed to know about the High Holidays at Kesher can be found here! Register for seats for Rosh Hashanah and/or Yom Kippur, sign up for babysitting, purchase your lulav and etrog, and more!
- Are you new to DC? We'd love to see you at the New Faces get-together! Please let us know who you are (if you haven't already!) and our Welcome Committee will be in touch with you with the information about how to register for our upcoming program after kiddush on Shabbat, September 13.
