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 Involved


Thank you to Jessica Torch and Lia Katz who are stepping down after several years as Mitzvah List coordinators.

DC Minyan is looking for 1–2 individuals to coordinate the DC Minyan Mitzvah list and help organize help to a community member when a little extra support, whether it's an illness, a new baby, or some other event.  If you are interested in contributing to the community in a low effort yet meaningful way, please email


Did you recently have a simcha and have no idea what to do with all of those extra kippot? Have you simply been collecting extra kippot over the years and have no idea what to do with them? You’re in luck! DC minyan is looking for extra kippot - please bring any kippot you’d like to donate to shul on Shabbat morning and place them in the kippot basket.  Or, find a gabbai or Steering Committee member who can help you.
