There are many factors in choosing a community and shul, and we are fortunate to have many wonderful communities and shuls in the Greater Washington area. We believe, however, that you will find the Young Israel of Potomac and Greater Potomac Jewish community one of the most warm, friendly, diverse, and vibrant around.    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 more than two decades.   Rabbi Singer currently serves as President of the Vaad of Greater Washington. 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 to arrange for Shabbat hospitality.   In the meantime, below are some helpful links to Jewish Washington:
