Let’s show Virginia how to really celebrate Chanukah! Join our choirs in this festive community singalong…gobble up your favorite donuts, fried chicken, and other fried (and not-so-fried) delicacies from some of Arlington’s best food trucks…and take home your very own dreidel and gelt! RSVP here

This month we are creating Something's Cooking Boxes for families moving from shelters to permanent homes. More details and RSVP here.

We're looking for hosts now! It's easy to be a host - all you have to do is tell us how many people you'd like to have and open up your home! Sign up to be a host here. Dinners are every Friday. Guests, bring a dish, a smile and enjoy an evening with TRS members! RSVP to a dinner here.

We will examine Jewish movements from Baal Shem Tov and Jewish mysticism through the French Revolution, Jewish Emancipation and early Reform Judaism through the present.
