Fall in Love with DC’s Newest Museum
Join the Capital Jewish Museum and continue our grand opening celebrations with a neighborhood block party! Kick off the New Year with live music and workshops from local Sephardic band Minnush, pop-up programs and social justice activities hosted by community partners, wares by artisans & makers, food trucks, a beer & wine garden, and more! 


During the block party we will be assembling hygiene kits to donate to Thrive DC for neighbors in need. Please consider contributing items from their Amazon Wish List to support this project. Click here to order items from the Wish List.


Minnush combines traditional Sephardic songs with contemporary elements of American folk, funk and jazz, creating serious, joyful, relevant, and eminently fresh music. Performance starts at 1 PM!

Capital Jewish Museum

The Capital Jewish Museum explores the Jewish experience in the national capital region and inspires visitors to connect, reflect, and act—connect personally and collectively, reflect on the relevance of the past to today, and act on behalf of their communities and values. With its experimental spirit, the Museum connects the past to the present through thought-provoking exhibitions, dynamic programming, and creative public experiences. The Community Action Lab invites visitors to engage through hands on-activities, resources, workshops, games, and more.
