PARENTS AND KIDS

DC Minyan is a thriving Jewish community in the heart of Washington, DC. Our membership grows in lots of ways, including through the addition of children! Here are some resources that you may find useful as you navigate urban Jewish life with children.

  • Parents Listserv: The Parents Listerv is a way for the Parents and Kids Team to communicate with families in the DCM community about special activities, events, and issues that are relevant to DCM families. If you aren’t already signed up for the listserv, email parents@dcminyan.org to be added.
  • Shabbat Morning Programming: Currently DCM offers community-run shabbat morning programming for three groups of children.  We offer tot shabbat for children 0-4 and their parents.  We have a children's service and parsha discussion for kids in kindergarten through fourth grade.  We also have a parsha conversation for kids in fifth through seventh grade using Hadar's Devash newsletter.  The two services for younger children meet during the Torah reading and the older kids meet at the end of the Torah reading.
  • Judaics Tutoring Co-op.  Each summer, DC Minyan matches small cohorts of students who learn together throughout the year.  The students meet in groups of three or four with experienced teachers to learn at least weekly by Zoom.  DC Minyan provides learning objectives to each teacher based on the ages of the students in the cohort.  The learning objectives focused on tefilla, chumash, and chaggim.  Cohort families then work together with the teacher to tailor the program to the learning styles and priorities of the families. The program is currently aimed at students between the ages of five and twelve. 
  • Lifecycle Resources: DCM has a number of lifecycle resources on the website, such as information about planning a bris or simchat bat.
  • Babysitting at DCM Events: We often offer babysitting during DCM events such as Lunch and Learns and high holidays.
