Jewish Community Center of Washington
While this isn't officially a church, it is the community center for Washington, D.C.'s, vibrant Jewish population. Like many East Coast cities, the Jewish community has been and remains an important part of the culture, economy, intellect, religious life, and politics in our nation's capital.
The Jewish Community Center of Washington (1529 16th Street NW) provides practical services like a fitness center and pool, as well as preschool, youth camp, and classes for kids. It also provides cultural events--plays, music, art and film--and social organizations like the Jewish Women's Project, the Kurlander Project for Gay and Lesbian Outreach and Engagement, and Behrend Adas Seniors Group, as well as a travel group and classes for adults.
