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!


As part of our continuing effort to maintain a strong and vibrant lay led community, we encourage our members to sign up to volunteer this coming year in some capacity, including volunteering to host new members and other hospitality guests, greeting on Shabbat, planning or volunteering at one of our events during the year, davening, leyning, or setting up/cleaning up Kiddush. 

We truly appreciate everyone’s participation in this effort!  

Please sign up today to volunteer to greet on Shabbat; set up/clean up Kiddush or host a hospitality guest.



Please join us for Shabbat Morning Services starting at 9:15 a.m. at the Edlavitch DCJCC, 1529 16th Street, NW.

Kiddush is sponsored by Lara Chausow and Lauren Weiss in honor of their aufruf.

Finally, Kiddish is also held in honor of your 2018 Stanley Cup Champions, the Washington Capitals. If you would like to sponsor Kiddush in honor of the Caps, please donate $5 here. Sponsor names will be read aloud during announcements at the end of services. #ALLCAPS
