Building Community Together
Learn. Play. Pray. Support. Explore. Connect.
We welcome you to join us and enrich your personal Jewish experience.
Regardless of where you are on your personal journey, Congregation B’nai Tzedek will enhance your life with opportunities to spend quality time with your family, easily make new friends, and enjoy the feeling of being part of your own unique Jewish community. We’re Israel advocates on the local, national and international scenes and leaders in tikkun olam for the Greater Washington Jewish Community. And we offer engaging and enlightening educational, spiritual and social programs for all ages and interests
We recognize that needs change over time and therefore we continually challenge ourselves to innovate and meet our congregants where they are in life—whether that’s through a flexible fee structure that evolves with your life stage, programs that go beyond our own walls, or a capital campaign to insure that we’re constantly innovating and poised and ready to meet the needs of a changing world.
Here’s a sampling of the communities and activities we have here at B’nai Tzedek.
The Greenzaid Early Childhood Center (ECC) is the ideal setting for young minds to grow with programs for babies through Pre-K. The Bernice & Mannie Rabvosky Religious School is a highly innovative and social learning center for children in grades K-12. Ask about our young family gatherings and couples retreat with Rabbi Weinblatt.
“CBT has given us a community, both inside the synagogue and outside. Most of the people we hang out with and are friends from the synagogue. The kids walk around the house singing prayers and songs that they learned here! It has definitely enhanced our religiosity.”
Parent of Children Ages 6 & 3
“Once you have kids and are active, CBT bring you a sense of heritage and you know you are part of something.”
Parent of Children Ages 12 & 8
We strive to engage our children at every age with Youth Group programs to connect them to each other and their Judaism. Ask Leah about Bonim (K-2), Baderech (3-5), Kadima (6-8), USY and CBTeens (9-12), College Connections and Israel Quest.
Sisterhood & Brotherhood
B’nai Tzedek Sisterhood and Brotherhood are active, vibrant, groups of members of diverse interests, ages, and Jewish backgrounds. We share a desire to make a positive contribution to synagogue life and to be a part of a warm, supportive community. We invite you to join us and make friends for life!
Suddenly our children were off to college and we had time to play. We created B’nai Boomers to get out and enjoy new experiences with our peers – everything from bowling to exploring museums, wine tastings, workshops and everything in between.
“CBT is wonderful. I love the services, the people are kind, we have a lot of connections, and it is a beautiful setting.”

A social group for retirees, Hazak provides a variety of social and educational programs, celebrations, speakers and tours of local sites.
Helping others in our community is a hallmark of our congregation. We look for opportunities for meaningful engagement with our members, from our Caring Community who support congregants in times of need, to our Inclusion Committee who ensure all members and guests have access to all we have to offer. Our Social Action Committee gives back to our local Montgomery County community through fun and social volunteer activities.
