Beth Sholom has more than a century of rich history in the surrounding Washington area. No matter where members have come from Beth Sholom remains a unified family of passionate people who enjoy worshipping, good food, learning, remembrance, and a continuation of ongoing responsibility for their members and the great community.

The Interfaith Greenway, a lovely garden set in a valley behind the synagogue, is a hard-working landscape, engineered to capture and hold storm water until it can percolate into the soil. It also creates food and habitat for local wildlife, just as it provides an oasis of beauty for congregants and neighbors. The garden can treat more than 10,000 of rainfall and remove more than 75% of the pollutants that were previously heading into the Cabin John watershed from Beth Sholom and St. James Episcopal's properties.

This Interfaith Greenway is a leading example of different faith traditions working together on Creation Care in an incredible way. Beth Sholom continues to be good neighbors by partnering with St. James Episcopal again to start a joint compost pile that will be opened up to members and hopefully the greater community.
