Be creative in your Jewish expression, find Jewish community and connect to all things Jewish at the Washington DCJCC’s

Whether it’s a special guest speaker, our popular Summer Writer’s Retreat and
Women's Retreat or our annual Community Second Night Seder, we offer you
out of the ordinary ways to experience Judaism.
Learn a language, join a Hebrew or Yiddish reading group, delve into a holy book,
bring new rituals into your home, learn to play Mah Jongg,
experience the joys of Jewish cooking,
and more with classes, workshops and one-day programs.
