Menu Washington Hebrew Congregation


With a growing network of over 2,600 people, 2239 is a fantastic way for young Jewish adults between the ages of 22 and 39 to meet one another and deepen their Jewish identity.

Whatever you're looking for, 2239 has it all. Looking for Shabbat? Our monthly Metro Minyan Shabbat community meets on the 4th Friday of every month at different Metro-accessible locations throughout the D.C. area.

Looking for opportunities to give back? With the help of the TOV Fund, 2239 engages in cutting-edge social action projects in Washington, D.C. and around the country to lend a hand to people and communities in need.

Looking for a social outlet? Happy hours, Nationals games, wine tasting trips, and other social events are fantastic opportunities to meet new people and have a great time. Our annual Purim Ball and 2239 Passover Seder are fun, inclusive, and enriching opportunities to celebrate holidays with D.C.'s young Jewish community.

Whether you've been in the D.C. area for years or are just arriving, we're excited to help you find your Jewish community.

What is 2239?

2239 provides a platform for young professionals in the D.C. metro area to explore their Jewish identities. Join us at our events and discover what makes us so unique!

Metro Minyan


Our next Metro Minyan is on Friday, July 28 at a location to be announced. Led by Rabbi Miller, the evening begins at 6:15 pm with "A Shot of Torah," an opportunity to study the weekly Torah portion and dive into some serious (and not so serious) Jewish discussion. The guitar-led, come-as-you-are Shabbat service starts at 7:00 pm and is followed by dinner.

Dinner is $12 if you preregister, $17 at the door.* The service is free.

Registration for this event will open soon. Please check back for more information.

The true cost of Metro Minyan is $38 per person. Through the generosity of WHC and Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies, and the Bernstein Family Foundation, we are able to offer a subsidized price.
