Gather’s Big MOVE!

In the past year, we’ve been through a LOT.

We’ve changed our name and recreated our brand.

We’ve increased our staff from a team of four to seven.

We’ve ramped up our engagement strategy so you and thousands of other 20s/30s can find their people and place in Jewish DC.

And now…we’ve moved into our very own townhouse at 1817 M Street in Dupont Circle! 

(Before we continue, just’d like to give a quick SHOUTOUT to each and every one of YOU for supporting Gather on this journey. Whether you showed up to an event, read our newsletter, liked our Facebook post, or made a gift – you are what keep our organization and community thriving. We couldn’t accomplish any of this without you. Thank you so much.)

But…why? You may ask.

Well, this space is going to serve as GatherDC’s home base and headquarters from which we can do our work across the city. We also hope this townhouse will be a resource for you! We look forward to working together to transform this townhouse into a welcoming, inclusive hub of Jewish community connection and collaboration, a space to host you and your friends for Shabbats, community events, meetings, parties, etc., and a ​means to support your continued engagement in Jewish life.

If you have ideas for how you want to see this townhouse used in our community, email us! (And yes, our townhouse has an accessible entrance-way and parking spot.)

Um, can we see it? 

Short answer, yes. We’d LOVE to have you over. But first, we need to make sure our space is looking totally on FLEEK. Once it is, we’re going to host a big community open house for you and your friends to tour and toast to the new space. Details coming soon.

Can we send a housewarming gift? 

We thought you’d never ask! If you want to support GatherDC as we usher in this new era for our organization – and our community, please consider making a donation. Every single dollar makes a BIG difference for us as we continue to build a dynamic, inclusive city for millennial Jewish life today, and for years to come. Cute mugs are also appreciated.

In the meantime, here’s a sneak preview of the townhouse!

FIRST DAY in the townhouse. Getting our schlepping-faces ready.

Adding gold leaf decals to the walls, as one does.

Help us fill up our bare kitchen shelves with a cute mug!

We can’t wait to learn, dine, and schmooze with you here!

Turquoise egg chairs are everything.

…and we mean, everything.
