Kemp Mill Synagogue
Welcome to KMS!
Welcome to Kemp Mill Synagogue. We are a Modern Orthodox Synagogue located in Silver Spring, Maryland, outside of Washington, DC. Founded in 1990, KMS is committed to Limud Torah, meaningful Tefillah, Medinat Yisrael and a vibrant youth program.
December 6 - 7, Dr. David Shatz, Scholar in Residence
Dr. David Shatz is a professor of philosophy and editor of The Torah u-Madda Journal and the MeOtzar HoRav series, devoted to publishing manuscripts of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik. KMS looks forward to an inspiring Shabbat with Dr. Shatz. This scholar-in-residence Shabbat is being generously sponsored by Gary and Shanna Winters in memory of Gary's father, Stephen Winters, z'l.

December 20 - 21, Yoetzet Halacha in Residence.
KMS will welcome Bracha Rutner, our Yoetzet Halacha for this year. Bracha will speak at the 8:45 minyan, at a special Women's Tefilla Group meeting, and at a Saturday night gathering at 8:30 pm at Gary & Shana Winters' home where the topic will be "Love & Intimacy in Halacha". We look forward to having an entire year of interesting and meaningful interactions with Bracha, a scholar, teacher, and experienced Yoetzet who grew up in our community!
