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!
