Young Israel Ezras Israel of Potomac
Welcome to Young Israel Ezras Israel of Potomac
A mainstream Modern Orthodox synagogue with a strong love for Chesed, Torah and the State of Israel
Why choose our community?
There are many factors in choosing a community and synagogue, and we are fortunate to have many wonderful communities and shuls in the Greater Washington area. We believe, however, that you will find the Potomac Jewish community one of the most warm, friendly, diverse, and vibrant around. Within a 5 minute walk are minyanim in nusach ashkenaz and sefard, a sephardic minyan and a Chabad shul. Our community enjoys its own beautiful mikvah, is in close proximity to many kosher establishments and day schools, and is a convenient commute to work in Western Montgomery County, Northern Virginia or the District.
At Young Israel, we are fortunate to be led by the same Rav, Rabbi Yosef Singer, for the past 18 years. The children in our shul attend all of the area day schools and yeshivot exemplifying the diversity of our kehilla. On Shabbat there are supervised groups led by our teens and overseen by our youth director from the beginning of davening until the conclusion. After davening each Shabbat, we join together and socialize at a festive cholent kiddush.
We invite you to spend a Shabbat in Potomac and at our shul. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for Shabbat hospitality. In the meantime, below are some helpful links to Jewish Washington:
