General information

We are a thriving Reform Jewish congregation nestled in the suburbs of Washington, DC. Since our founding in 1962, we have grown to the largest Jewish congregation in Virginia, serving over 1500 households from McLean, Arlington, Falls Church, Vienna and other nearby Northern Virginia areas. Together we strive to build a sacred community, Kehilla Kedosha, unified by common goals and ideals, where all members are embraced, Jewish traditions are honored and our spiritual link to Israel is fostered. TRS is a diverse community that offers a broad range of spiritual, educational, and social programs that engage members of every age and background. We have something for everyone! Learn & Grow During the week, our Nursery School provides a joyful and nurturing learning environment for over 200 children. If you stop by evenings and weekends, you'll see over 900 students bustling about the halls of our Religious School. As is a Jewish tradition, learning is a lifelong affair and this tradition continues here at TRS with energetic adult educational programs. Pray Our worship style — accessible and inclusive — enriches the heart, mind, and spirit of all who attend. The music at our services is participatory and engaging. A number of opportunities exist to meet the many needs of our congregants. Engage Our calendar is bursting at the seams with exciting speakers and activities.

TRS Community: We have just received a very important message from our clergy and lay leadership about how we must respond to the tsunami of anti-Semitism that has been unleashed on our community during the last three years: with vigilance, with justice, and with Judaism. Please consider especially these powerful words: "Do not allow antisemitism to be, as Deborah Lipstadt, author of Antisemitism: Here & Now, notes, 'the fulcrum upon which our identity pivots.'” כן יהי רצון
