Segulah is an independent minyan that meets in various locations in Shepherd Park/Silver Spring for full-liturgy, energizing, songful, and participant-led egalitarian davening in a warm, welcoming, accessible neighborhood community.
Our regular Shabbat morning services and occasional Friday night services are typically followed by a communal meal. In addition, the Segulah community celebrates holidays together, meets for educational and learning events, and supports each other in times of need.
The name “Segulah” has several meanings in Hebrew, including:
1) “treasure”. In the Torah, the people of Israel are called an “am segulah“, a treasured nation.
2) “purple”. Our community meets in the neighborhood where the Purple Line will run.
