Adat Shalom offers each member a meaningful place within a vibrant, caring and intentional community. The congregation becomes a major part of the social network of many of its members, a place where deep friendships are formed, where members turn to celebrate joyous occasions and to be supported when they are in need. Participation and voluntarism are central to Adat Shalom’s culture, and everything we do comes back to the idea of kehilah, of community.
As followers of Jesus Christ, we seek to promote the dignity of life by recognizing the uniqueness of every individual regardless of race, creed, age or gender working together in the Body of Christ. We bring the good news to the world by becoming a visible sign of God’s love performed through the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
Faith and Action is a Christian outreach to top-level government officials located in Washington, D.C., throughout the United States and around the world. Our purpose is to challenge the minds and consciences of public policy makers with the mandate given by Christ in the two Great Commandments: Love God With All Your Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength, and Love Your Neighbor As Yourself.
