About Us

Magen David Sephardic Congregation-Beit Eliahu (MDSCBE) is a modern Orthodox Synagogue located in Rockville, Maryland. Our Synagogue is located in a beautiful residential area, close to NIH, the Jewish Community Center, 5 Jewish Day Schools, a community mikveh, and the cultural and business district of Washington DC.

The membership of Magen David spans many generations. Our congregation, which was founded in 1966, has a long history of proud service to the Washington Metropolitan area, and the Sephardic community.

Our Synagogue is a warm and inviting family, with many opportunities for involvement. It is a place where children and adults are able to come together to explore and grow in their commitment to Judaism. We view ourselves as The Sephardic Institution that serves as the focal point for the broader Sephardic community, and as the focal point in the lives of our members.
