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!

Weekly Announcements - November 23, 2022

Dvar Torah

Thank you our scholar-in-residence this past week, Rabbi Atara Cohen, for delivering the dvar Torah for Parshat Chayei Sara as well as an excellent shiur. If you missed it or would like to relive it, you can find the Dvar Torah here and the shiur here.




There will be no DC Minyan services this week due to the substantial amount of Thanksgiving travel.
