About Us

Ohev Sholom - The National Synagogue┬« (OSTNS) is a vibrant and open Orthodox Jewish community located in the Shepherd Park neighborhood of Washington, DC.  We are committed to upholding and practicing the tenets of halacha while remaining open and welcoming to those who are in different places on their Jewish spiritual journey. We invite you to experience our community to see what makes it so great by joining us for a class, daily minyan, a Shabbat, or other activity, and we encourage you to reach out!

Our Mission
OSTNS's mission is to serve the greater Washington, DC Jewish community through daily prayer services, religious and social programming, extensive youth programming, support for Israel, and Jewish learning.

Prayer & Worship
We invite you to join us in prayer. Our shul offers a daily Shacharit and Mincha/Maariv minyan (Maariv only in Winter). Each Friday night, we have a spiritual and uplifting Kabbalat Shabbat service. On Saturday mornings, we have a weekly Shabbat service, followed by a communal kiddush open to all. Our main sanctuary seats up to 650 people and is an awe-inspiring space to connect to our creator.
