In the Community

We love the sense of community our son is learning and that his entire class displays every day a sense of caring, responsibility and support for each other.

The backgrounds of CESJDS families express the pluralistic intentions of our school.

Our families come from over 30 unique zipcodes around the Metro D.C. area, and speak seven different languages (English, Hebrew, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Persian, Romanian, and French). About 2/3 affiliate Conservative; 20% Modern Orthodox; 11% Reform; and the remaining 3% affiliate Chabad, Reconstructionist, Traditional, or consider themselves unaffiliated. CESJDS families are members of dozens of synagogues in the area, serve the community professionally, and are involved in other Jewish and secular organizations, alike.

I love the feel of community at CESJDS. I love watching students shine each week at Kabbalat Shabbat. I love being part of such a creative, intellectual, energetic faculty.
