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!

An important strength of our community is supporting one another, even if we can’t physically be together. Many in our community are negatively impacted by the current situation, including illnesses, layoffs, negative financial effects, and additional life stressors. If you have been negatively impacted and could use support or know someone who could—whether it be help getting groceries, financial support, help getting dinner on the table, or something else—please reach out at All requests will be kept confidential and will be handled with discretion.
