Join the DC Minyan community for a Match-Up Shavuot Lunch on 2nd Day Shavuot, Sunday, June 13. Whether you are new to DC Minyan or have been a member for years, this event is a great opportunity to meet new people over a delicious Chag meal. DC Minyan provides the food, hosts provide the table, and guests provide the company! 

*New addition to Match-Up Meal* As a trial, we are including in the sign-up form a space to state your preference as to whether you want to stay in your local area or if you want us to try and match you with people who haven't previously shared a match-up meal with you. If you want to hang with the usual crew, or if there are people in the community who you want to try and get to know better, let us know and we can try and make sure you get the match-up table you want!

Note that catered meals will be fleishig with vegetarian options. Please register here by Wednesday June 5 as a host or by Thursday, June 6 at 11:59 pm as a guest. Please contact the Hospitality Committee at with any questions.

We are still looking to fill a few teaching slots at our all-night Tikkun and for help organizing food at the Farbrengen. If you are interested, please email


The Mitzvah Volunteer List is being refreshed! This group is for when community members need a little extra support with meals, or something else—maybe because of an illness, a new baby, or another event. To join the group and hear about volunteer opportunities, or to reach out for help, please email
