WELCOME TO DC MINYAN!
DC Minyan is a traditional egalitarian Jewish community located in Dupont Circle, in the heart of our nation’s capital. We seek to create an environment that will welcome, enrich, and challenge people of all ages, from all backgrounds, and with all levels of familiarity with Jewish texts and ritual. Our hope is that this young community will provide an inviting space for the members of the DC community to share their ideas, their aspirations, and their prayers. As a lay-led community, the Minyan derives its strength and its warmth from you.
On this website, you can find information about our events, how to get more involved, and more! To get more information, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions. If you have additional questions, please email email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
