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

+1 I went through my congressman (Chris Smith), about 2 weeks before our scheduled trip, and his office got us 4 tickets for the white house tour.
How do I know who my congressman is?

Thanx! Just tried with Chris Smith. I'll KYP.

Got a phone call back within 24 hours. Told me can only book 3 months in advance (contrary to the 4 month deadline post up thread) and gave me a direct number to be in contact with the rep. Super helpful! Menendez on the other hand.....crickets.

Char Bar and Souper Girl are within walking distance. There are no kosher supermarkets per se - see here for list of supermarkets nearby and what kosher selection they each have: https://www.kesher.org/jewish-dc.html
