Welcome to Ohev Sholom - The National Synagogue


Ohev Sholom - The National Synagogue is a dynamic Orthodox community that values Torah, prayer, and good deeds. Located in Northwest Washington, DC's thriving Shepherd Park neighborhood just steps from Maryland, we engage the modern world while embracing Halacha and Jewish Traditions.

On our newly re-designed website, you will see why OSTNS is such a warm and special community, including our uplifting Tefilah (services), enriching Torah shiurim (classes), chesed opportunities (good deeds), exciting events, and much, much more. We look forward to welcoming you into our community.
