Welcome to the site of the Greater Washington Coalition for Jewish Life (GWCJL or “Coalition”). Our organization meets monthly for Friday night worship as well as for Jewish Holidays, life cycle events, Jewish study and programs that present Judaism in a relevant, interactive way (described herein). We respect and observe the three principles of Judasim: worship, study and acts of loving kindness.
We welcome all who seek knowledge about or a relationship with the Jewish faith and people, regardless of gender, race, marital status, sexual orientation, ethnic background or political affiliation. People with all approaches to Judaism are encouraged to participate whether they consider themselves Reform, Reconstructionst, Conservative, Orthodox, Jews by choice or are in an interfaith relationship. Our membership is comprised of both full and part time residents, and join us from a variety of towns in the region.
