2239

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!

Mitzvah Day with Yachad

Washington Hebrew Congregation's Mitzvah Day on April 30, 2017, represents the culmination of our yearlong focus on community service and our long-standing commitment to helping the homeless, sick, hungry, and underprivileged in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. community.

On Mitzvah Day, our volunteers, young and old working together, lend their time, energy, and compassion to social service agencies working to improve the lives of people in need. In keeping with Judaism's teachings of tikkun olam, to repair the world, Mitzvah Day inspires participants to pursue justice through social activism.

2239 will be giving back to the community by partnering with Yachad to make repairs on a home in D.C. Shift 1 is from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm and shift 2 is from 12:30 - 4:00 pm. The location will be sent out closer to the event.
