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!

Shabbat Services

KABBALAT SHABBAT - 1/14 at 6:00 pm

Register here for Kabbalat Shabbat services on Friday, January 14 at 6:00 pm. Based on survey responses, this service will be held indoors. Masks are required inside at all times. KN95 or N95 masks are strongly encouraged. There will be no snacks served after services.


Register here for Shabbat Morning Services on Saturday, January 22 at 9:15 am. Location of services will be determined by responses on the registration form.

Kiddush is sponsored by Ariella Slovin and Daniel Shore in celebration of the newest member of their family, Lior Zamir, born on December 14, 2021. They are excited to bring him into the DC Minyan community, and can't wait for him to meet you (and vice-versa)! 

Only those who have registered and received a confirmation email may attend services. Registration is required by our venue due to capacity limits and for contact tracing purposes. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. All attendees eligible for boosters must be boosted, and all children 5 and over must be fully vaccinated (that’s two weeks post second shot). Masks are required inside for everyone except when eating or drinking at kiddush. Masks are not required outside for those who are fully vaccinated. Masks remain required at all times for non-fully vaccinated children above age 2 except when eating or drinking.



In order to move forward with refugee resettlement efforts, we need to get a better sense of what we can commit to as a community. Please fill out this quick survey by THIS Sunday, January 16 so we can better understand what we are able to offer. If you have any questions, please email
