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 We look forward to hearing from you!

Community-wide High Holidays Discussion - 6/14 at 8:30 pm

Join us on Monday, June 14 to discuss what YOU would like our High Holidays programming to look like this year. The night will include a brief presentation on important considerations from a COVID-safety perspective as well as breakout groups to allow everyone a chance to weigh in on our options. Register here by Sunday, June 13, to receive the Zoom link.

Judaics Co-Op

DCM has begun enrollment for the second year of the Judaics Co-op!! SIGN UP here during the registration period, which runs through June 30, 2021.

For the coming school year, we will build on the success of this year's program and will be building cohorts of 3–4 students who will meet with experienced teachers at least weekly by Zoom. The program will focus on tefilla, chumash, and chaggim—and DC Minyan will provide learning objectives to each teacher. We hope to have cohorts for students ranging from 5–13 years of age.

The program cost will be $1,000 for the year per student for cohorts holding the minimum 40 hours of lessons and will scale up for cohorts that build in additional hours. DC Minyan members will get preference in establishing cohorts. However, students from outside the DC Minyan community will be welcome to fill open spaces in existing cohorts. Feel free to reach out to with questions.
