Questions we get a lot:

How does everyone at DC Minyan seem to know each other? Are there social events where I can meet people in an informal setting?

It may seem like everyone is talking to someone they know during kiddush and other events, but in fact many people at DC Minyan do not know each other. Others have gotten to know one another by regularly attending DC Minyan services or by volunteering to help with a DC Minyan program. Most people who come to DC Minyan would love to get to know more people in the room. We encourage you to introduce yourself to people you don’t know, and we encourage DC Minyan leaders to look out for and welcome newcomers.

There are many opportunities to get to know people through community meals, holiday events, learning programs, and more! These programs offer a setting more intimate and substantive than kiddush to get to know others in the DC Minyan community.

I am moving to DC and want to live near the DC Minyan community. How can I find housing and/or a roommate? What neighborhoods should I consider?

DC Minyan members live in neighborhoods including Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan/Woodley Park, the U Street Corridor, Foggy Bottom, Logan Circle, Columbia Heights, Mt. Pleasant, and elsewhere in the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia metropolitan area.

We also recommend searching the listings at GatherDC, a website for young Jews in DC. More generally, apartment listings can also be found at washingtonpost.com, washingtoncitypaper.com, and washingtondc.craigslist.org.
