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!

Get in the DC Minyan Directory!

We're putting together a printed member directory! How retro! We'll be using the member info you provided on our website, either when you registered as a member or in your member survey responses last winter, including your names, phone numbers, email addresses, physical address (so you can visit each other on Shabbat!), and names and birth years of children. We'd also like to include allergy info to make meal hosting easy, and photos so you can put faces to names and remember everyone you met in shul.

To send us allergy info and photos, please use this form; we may attempt to pull photos from social media as well. You can also use the form to opt out of the directory entirely if you'd like to stay mysterious. Email with any questions.


High Holidays Registration and Membership Drive

Registration for High Holiday tickets is live for members! Members can use this form to register themselves and their out-of-town guests for seats at our Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services. Associate and non-members can register starting next Monday, August 22.
