Shir Delight

Join hundreds of Jewish Young Professionals at Shir Delight, Adas Israel's Kabbalat Shabbat experience. Our evening begins at 6:30 with a happy hour followed by a clergy-led Kabbalat Shabbat, lay-led Maariv service and Shabbat dinner. Rabbi Alexander will lead Kabbalat Shabbat and the meal will be Israeli with vegetarian and gluten free options.


YP & Hesed Cooking Event
Wednesday, February 22 @ 7pm Register Here

Join other YP'ers and the Hesed Cooking Team as we cook for a cause! The Hesed Committee at Adas Israel is committed to fostering a caring, compassionate, and support giving community.  Give back to the community and learn an amazing Hamentaschen recipe at the same time. Although you won't be bringing any of the delicious treats with you (we'll store them in our Hesed freezer to be delivered at a later date to members in need), you'll walk away with the tools to make your own Hamentaschen and good feels that you are helping the larger Adas community.

Purim @ Adas: The World Upside Down

Join us for the festive observances of Purim! Commemorating the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman's plot “to destroy the Jews in a single day.” Ultimately, Purim is a holiday urging each of us to witness our lives from an alternate reality; a day in which up becomes down, right becomes left, and life becomes laughter.

Join YP@AI as we give back to the DC community! Every 3rd Sunday, 8 – 10 volunteers will serve dinner at The Patricia Handy Place for Women, run by N Street Village.
