Magen David Sephardic Congregation (MDSC) is a modern Orthodox synagogue founded in 1966. We provide a friendly gathering place and the support of a caring community for our members, potential members, and guests. We nourish our spirituality through worship, increase our understanding through study, and nurture our children with activities and programs that combine listening, learning, and laughter.


Our distinctive Sephardic character is a source of pride for us, but membership in MDSC is far from exclusive. Our members have roots in many countries and varied traditions. Visitors may hear not only "Welcome" but also "Bienvenue!" and "Bienvenidos!" -- and from our many Israeli families, a hearty "Shalom!"


We regard our membership as our family, and we are deeply devoted to the welfare of each individual member. We are also keenly aware of our place in the larger Jewish community, as well as our responsibility to the people of the nation of Israel.


Our energy is contagious, inspiring all who come here to take active part in our services. We invite people at all levels of Jewish knowledge and awareness to explore their personal growth here, supported by others in our friendly community. Our building is ideally located to serve worshippers from Bethesda, Rockville, and Potomac, Maryland, as well as the surrounding suburbs of Washington, DC.


We hope you'll take the time to visit this website in depth to learn more about our programs, events, and opportunities to worship with us.
