Jewish Rockville Outreach Center, JewishROC, is a warm and welcoming Outreach Center inspiring Jews from all backgrounds and levels of observance to experience a closer connection to Judaism and a deeper spirituality through Torah, education, and engaging Jewish practice.
Our community is a mix of affiliated and unaffiliated Jews from the Greater Washington area, Virginia and Maryland, as well as a core community of JewishROC members. Our classes, services, and programs are open to everyone regardless of Jewish background or knowledge.
Our congregation grew from a core community of committed families and individuals who became the driving force in the establishment of JewishROC. It has since extended to those who share the common goal of lifelong learning and growth in Jewish thought. Since our inception, our friends and supporters are the foundation that enable JewishROC to reach out to the greater community with classes, services and programs that are open to everyone, regardless of affiliation or membership.
