Location & Directions

Location and Directions

Bet Mishpachah's Shabbat services and many other events normally take place at the Washington DC Jewish Community Center (DCJCC). The address is 1529 16th Street N.W., Washington DC, 20036. Beginning in late August 2018, the Edlavitch building of the DCJCC will close for renovation for roughly one year. During this period and beginning on August 24, 2018, Shabbat services will relocate to Foundry United Methodist Church. Foundry is at 1500 16th St. NW (the northwest corner of 16th & P), one block south of the DJCCC. Read more about the relocation to Foundry. Shabbat services will generally be held in the Community Hall on the first floor. To access the Community Hall, use the church main entrance, which is in the middle set of doors on the 16th St. facade. (You may need to ring to enter.) From the lobby, use the doors on the left. The Community Hall is on the right on the other side of the doors.
