Sephardic Minyan - מניין ספרדי

Sephardi Minyan at Beth Sholom

Within the walls of Beth Sholom Synagogue, a thriving Sephardi Minyan is continuing to grow and be the home and gathering place for many members of Sephardi heritage. A melting pot of members from the vast and ancient lands of the Middle East such as Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Morocco, Syria, Yemen…and modern Israel gathered here since 1996.

The Minyan is led by Rabbi Haim Ovadia, a Rabbinic, Biblical and Halachic scholar, whose path blazed communities in Israel, South America and the USA. Enjoy Shabbat and Holiday services, filled with poignant Sephardi melodies sung by the whole congregation. Connect with community, build friendships and comradery with members and friends.

Enjoy a delicious Kiddush, musical concerts and other synagogue wide community celebrations promoting the Sephardi culture and heritage.

As a member of Beth Sholom Congregation, you have access to all the synagogue benefits, young family and teen programs, educational programs for adults, sisterhood programs and life cycle events.

If you live in Montgomery County, Maryland or plan to move to the DC metro area, We welcome you to join us with open arms.
