We’re a dynamic organization focused on reaching out to Jews of all backgrounds to share with them the beauty and relevance of Jewish wisdom and identity, and the vitality and meaning they afford.

For 30 years, the Aish Center has provided countless Jewish families and singles in the Metro Washington area and beyond with a connection to traditional Jewish values and learning, and to their own Jewish identity, through a variety of opportunities, both educational and experiential. We believe Judaism is a life-long journey of growth where every step counts, and so we work hard to provide settings where each person can find their unique way to experience Jewish living suited to their own pace and 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, 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 bakes, our annual Tu B’Shvat hike or one of our lively Shabbatons
  • Young-family programs like our Purim carnival, Chanukah concert, Shavuot cheesecake party, Passover escape room, Sukkah hop and communal Shabbat dinners 
  • 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 US with consistent programming geared to their growth

We roll with the times, constantly seeking new and innovative avenues to expose people to real and relevant Judaism, but 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.

The pandemic forced us to cancel all of our major fundraising events and it dried up many sources of donations, but we still need to continue on our vital mission. That’s why we have set an ambitious goal to raise $120,000 in just 36 hours. As an extra incentive, a group of generous donors have agreed to DOUBLE every dollar you donate by Monday night. Please join us in our mission by opening your heart and supporting us today.
