Shabbat Services with MesorahDC*
First Friday and First and Third Saturdays
Rabbis and chazzans of MesorahDC lead a traditional service with soulful melodies and contemporary insights. The Friday night service is followed by dinner. There is separate seating for men and women during the service. (Services are not held during the summer.) MesorahDC is an independent program that uses space at Sixth & I.
