Relocating from Philly suburbs, PA and thinking of moving to Howard County instead of Montgomery county due to its affordability (I hope). I am Jewish but my husband is not. We wanted to know if there are any reform synagogues in Howard county and where? I want to find a synagogue where my husband feels welcomed even though he is not too knowledgable of Judism.

There are several synagogues in Howard County. One of my friend's parents is a rabbi at Temple Isaiah. This will help you: Jewish congregations (broken link)

There is a Conservative congregation, and there at least used to be a (very intermarriage friendly,IIUC) independent congregation called Columbia Jewish, and I think a Reform congregation.

BTW, while a C congregation will limit the role of a gentile spouse more than a Reform one would, most would still welcome intermarried couples, and I bet the one in Columbia does. They certainly welcome people who are not knowledgeable in Judaism (though a service with much more Hebrew might be less comfortable for some folks without the ability to read Hebrew)
