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!

EDCJCC Fundraising Drive

As part of our return to the Edlavitch DCJCC, DC Minyan is engaged in a fundraising drive to contribute to the EDCJCC Building Fund. DC Minyan is thrilled with the improvements made to the spaces we regularly use, and this provides an opportunity for us to reaffirm our role as a key partner with the EDCJCC moving forward. Our goal is to raise $4,000 to make a joint donation on behalf of the Minyan. In recognition of our efforts, the EDCJCC has offered us a naming opportunity in the new building. We encourage members to make a donation of whatever amount they feel they can contribute. All donations can be made on the DC Minyan website, please indicate “JCC Building Fund” in the notes.
