Who we are:

Congregation Beth Emeth, House of Truth, is an inclusive, inter-generational, egalitarian Conservative synagogue in Herndon, VA, in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. We consider ourselves "just the right size" – large enough to meet our members' spiritual, educational, and social needs while preserving the warmth of a close-knit community. A member of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ), Congregation Beth Emeth (CBE) offers a variety of opportunities for people to find meaning in and connection to Judaism.

We have recently marked 44 years as a congregation. What started with just 15 families coming together in a local community center to worship and learn together has grown into the CBE of today with our own beautiful sanctuary and education building, energetic religious, chai, and pre-schools, engaging adult educational programs, and award-winning auxiliary groups including Men's Club, Sisterhood, Hazak, and USY. All are enhanced by a dedicated Board of Directors and a cadre of volunteers who lead religious services, spread tikun olam to the community, provide entertaining events, and so much more.
