Welcome to Kehilat Shalom!

Kehilat Shalom was established in 1971 and throughout our history we have been a center of learning, worship, and social justice for the Jewish community of Montgomery and Frederick Counties. We are fortunate to welcome Rabbi Charles Arian as our new spiritual leader and to continue to have Hazzan Kim Komrad lead us in prayer. Every day we strive to be a warm, welcoming, inclusive community where relationships thrive and “friends become family.” There is a place here for people of all different Jewish backgrounds, interfaith families, and those who choose to convert to Judasim.

Kehilat Shalom has a lot to offer our members. We have a beautiful sanctuary that creates an atmosphere of spirituality and reflection for our Shabbat and holiday services. We have an experienced, dedicated staff that cares about each and every member. We have many volunteers who give generously of their time to create the wonderful programs that are offered by the SisterhoodMen’s ClubActive Retirees, and many more.

Kehilat Shalom is a place to learn and grow in your knowledge and experience of Judaism as well as a place to meet new people and become a part of a vibrant, caring community. We invite you to visit us so we can personally introduce you to Kehilat Shalom. Please contact our office at 301-869-7699 or secretary@kehilatshalom.org to schedule a tour and get more information. We look forward to sharing your Jewish journey with you!
