We roll with the times, constantly seeking innovative ways to share real and relevant Judaism. Now more than ever, people are seeking connection and community, and we are on our way to building better with expanded programming and reach. But we can only do it together with you. 

That’s why we have set an ambitious goal to raise $180,000 in just 36 hours. As an extra incentive, a group of generous donors have agreed to DOUBLE every dollar you donate.

For more than 30 years, the Aish Center has provided countless Jewish families and singles in the Greater Washington area and beyond with a connection to traditional Jewish values and wisdom, and to their own Jewish identity, through a variety of opportunities, both educational and experiential. 

We’re a dynamic organization reaching out to Jews of all backgrounds to share the beauty and relevance of Jewish wisdom and identity, and the vitality and meaning those can afford.

We believe Judaism is a life-long journey of growth where every step is relevant and meaningful, so we work hard to provide settings where each person can find their unique path and experience Jewish living at their own pace according to their areas of interest.

The people who walk through our doors, both physical and virtual, engage in our various offerings:

  • Daily educational classes and small-group learning opportunities from educators in the community and frequent guest speakers
  • Online cooking or wellness programs
  • Crash courses in different areas of Jewish observance, Hebrew reading, Holiday prep and the like
  • One-on-one tutoring and guidance through Jewish lifecycle events from birth through marriage and shiva
  • Shabbat and Holiday programs to deepen their understanding of Judaism through our explanatory services and by participating in one of our interactive classes and discussion groups, or just to socialize and experience a sense of a warm, welcoming Jewish community
  • Our unique High Holiday program, featuring guest speakers, interactive classes and workshops, beginners services, a hands-on kids program and more 
  • Shabbat and Holiday dinners held in the homes of our community members
  • Social events like challah and babka bakes, Backyard Barbecues or one of our lively Shabbatons
  • Young-family programs like communal Shabbat dinners, our monthly “Super Saturday,” and our annual highlight events: the Purim carnival, the Chanukah concert, the Shavuot ice cream party and the Sukkah hop 
  • Kids programs and events in partnership with local schools and Jewish organizations
  • Annual trips to Israel for moms and dads, many for their first time, in partnership with Momentum, and a Poland heritage trip, with the participants' experience continuing once they are back in the States with consistent follow-up programming geared to their growth

Because the Aish Center’s funding comes ONLY from private donors, we rely on the generosity of those who support our work and see our far-reaching results. Please join us in our mission by opening your heart and supporting us today. And remember, every dollar you donate by Monday night will be DOUBLED.
