Largest Jewish community is in Silver Spring, which is a suburb of Washington. For tourists, best place to stay is in downtown Silver Spring, which has a metro stop and a nearby  shul in Woodside Park within walking distance.

The shul website also has alot of helpful tourist information

Things to do
Washington Monument closed until Spring 2019

They've had excellent food and desserts at several events that I attended; not sure of the entire line is available for take-out. They catered the White House Seder this year (Jewish staff and some Chabad attended Erev Pesach, no members of trump mishpacha), so they are definitely of high caliber, totally kosher, and enjoyed by many.
