We’re REOPENING AT 16th and Q!

Reopening this September!

Following our exciting ten-month renovation, our historic Sixteenth Street building will reopen its doors this September as a world-class facility designed to present the highest caliber arts and cultural programs, enhanced spaces for early childhood education and programs for children and their families, a refreshed health and fitness center, and so much more.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you – our diverse, vibrant community – back to the Edlavitch DCJCC as we continue to write the Jewish story in the nation’s capital!

Our $20+ Million Campaign focuses on:

General Building Enhancements: A Modern Facility

Our plans include modernizing the building, enhancing operations and security, and making the building more energy efficient.

Early Childhood, Youth, and Family: Additional Space

This space will include new classrooms, a dedicated elevator and stairway to enhance security for the preschool, and indoor play spaces.

A Second Arts and Multi-Use Space

Plans include a second flexible arts space which will support our world-class culture and arts programs and offer the opportunity to expand other programming and revenue.


Endowing programs and ensuring the upkeep of our historic building for generations to come.
