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

It's the same like CitiBike, I don't remember the exact name. They're green bikes.

Planning a quick getaway next week to DC for 3 days/2 nights

Plan on doing:

Holocaust Museum
Air & Space Museum
Newseum
Mint
National Archives
Lincoln Memorial
Washington Monument
Jefferson Memorial
White House

Anything else that's not worth missing? TIA
Sounds like you're not planning for a car, but just in case, you might be interested in the national zoo (for the famous pandas) or the other part of the air and space museum (near Dulles - it's a hangar full of cool planes).

I actually am driving down there but won't be using the car unless necessary. Question is how much I can fit into my time frame
Speaking of cars in DC, anyone with any good parking tips?
TIA
