Ezras Israel Congregation of Rockville is a warm and welcoming community of about 45 families and singles, has a rich history and devoted to serving the Jewish community and promoting Jewish observance. We are a diverse group--our members include ashkenazim and sephardim; traditional, modern, Litvish, and chassidish; and range from "frum-from-birth" to just beginning their exploration of Judaism. All are welcome, and all feel at home.
Rabbi Eliezer Kreiser came from Lakewood to be Ezras Israel's young and energetic spiritual leader in 1999. Rabbi Kreiser and Rebbitzen Perel Kreiser's gracious hospitality is well known and is generally the second stop for newcomers after shul Shabbat morning. Their relaxed and genuine manner is indicative of the easy atmosphere of the Ezras Israel community. Shabbat morning services is just the beginning of many opportunities to grow, spiritually and otherwise, at Ezras Israel, and to do so at one's own pace.
We are conveniently located near White Flint and Twinbrook Metro, the JCC of Greater Washington, Koshermart, and a variety of great living options. See the neighborhood page for more details.
Please join us for a class, a holdiay service, or even just a home-cooked shabbos meal. For more information, please use the contact us form.
