Woodside Synagogue Ahavas Torah (WSAT), has been an important part of the greater Washington area’s vibrant Jewish community for over 50 years. Our synagogue offers daily minyanim, programming for children and a variety of Torah classes, all in a warm and welcoming environment.   We are fortunate to benefit from Rabbi Moshe Walter’s rich Torah scholarship, spiritual guidance and vibrant leadership.  Woodside Synagogue is located just north of downtown Silver Spring, conveniently close to kosher shopping and a Metro Station.  We welcome you to our website and encourage you to contact us (information@wsat.org) for more information.
