Welcome to Kesher Israel: The Georgetown Synagogue!

Kesher Israel Congregation (The Georgetown Synagogue) is a vibrant and historic Modern Orthodox community that integrates halakhic Judaism and contemporary life in the nation’s capital. Just blocks from the White House, the US Capitol, and the National Mall, Kesher is a full-service synagogue that provides a rich spiritual and intellectual environment for daily services, educational and social programs,  charitable works, and life-cycle events. 

As the only shul of its kind in downtown DC, Kesher Israel, cherishes warmth and hospitality, and people of all ages, genders, and religious backgrounds are welcomed and respected.
