New Rabbi for Congregation Adat Reyim of Springfield

New Rabbi for Congregation Adat Reyim of Springfield

Congregation Adat Reyim of Springfield has a new permanent religious leader, Rabbi George D. Billinson. A resident of Northern Virginia for more than 40 years, Rabbi Billinson previously served as the Rabbi for the Fort Belvoir Jewish Congregation in Fairfax, Va. Before that he spent more than two decades serving the Jewish community in various capacities, including as a lay cantor, Ritual Chair, adult education and religious-school teacher, and President of George Mason University Hillel.  

Rabbi Billinson said of his new position, “I am honored to have been selected as Congregation Adat Reyim’s permanent rabbi. Adat Reyim is a very special, welcoming community, and my family and I have really appreciated getting to know this vibrant congregation. I look forward to a wonderful relationship with this community of friends.” 

An unaffiliated congregation, Adat Reyim serves the Northern Virginia communities of Springfield, Fort Belvoir, Fairfax Station, Burke, Alexandria, Vienna, and the Fairfax County section of Alexandria. From the name – which means a “community of friends” – to an inclusive approach to Judaism, this is a place members feel at home. Activities draw on the richness of Jewish tradition and respect the many ways our diverse community members connect to each other and the Divine. Interfaith families are welcome.  

Congregation Adat Reyim is located at 6500 Westbury Oaks Court in Springfield, Va. For more information, please contact us at or 703-569-7577.
