Coronavirus Online Learning

We continue to monitor the rapidly-evolving public health needs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. We are taking into account the health and safety of our community, CDC guidelines, city and state advisories, our synagogue mission, staff needs, and synagogue policies. As we follow the FCPS and Governor Northam has cancelled school for the remainder of the year Religious School, face to face instruction, will also be cancelled for the remainder of the year. The decision we have made is based in the Jewish teaching of pikkuah nefesh {saving a life as a prime directive). Based on what we have learned, caution demands that we limit large group gatherings and cancel events that are focused on public meals and food, among other measures.

  • The plan is to make up for missed class time using the technology we have to post distance learning opportunities for the students and their families. ​​​​We hope that you will take the time to learn along with your children. Please click here to access the Religious School Online Learning

Ruach Playlist on Spotify

The Spotify Playlist is up and ready.  It includes the songs we have been sharing together and a few Rosh Hashanah songs we hope you will enjoy.  The playlist will continue to be updated as we share new music with the students.  If you do not already have an account with Spotify, you can download the app for free and begin listening.  The free version is not nearly as flexible and exciting as the for-a-fee version, but it is a place to start and is worth a try. The playlist is entitled Adat Reyim Ruach 2019-2020.
