Tours

Learn more about "Jewish Washington"
– Take a walking tour of downtown D.C.

Washington may be known as our Nation’s Capital, and yes, there’s a good many government buildings and museums here. That’s really a very simplified way of describing the city. If you ask any native "Washingtonian" or long-time resident – you’ll find out something different. Washington is filled with many historical neighborhoods that are worth seeing on a tour of the city. And, perhaps surprising to some of you – it’s got a very rich Jewish heritage!

7thstreetWe’ve arranged with the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington (JHSGW) to provide a guided tour of "Jewish Washington," scheduled twice for your convenience: Saturday, August 13, starting at 11 a.m.; and Thursday, August 18, starting at 9:30 a.m.

Learn what it was like to live and worship as a Jew in Washington from 1850 to 1950 in the historic Seventh Street, NW, neighborhood, now known as Chinatown but originally settled largely by German Jews. The tour includes visiting the sites of four former synagogues you may have heard of: the Sixth and I Streets Historic Synagogue (which is the second Adas Israel site), the original Adas Israel site (the Lillian and Albert Small Jewish Museum and current home of JHSGW), the original site of Washington Hebrew Congregation, and the original Ohev Sholom.

Led by a guide provided by JHSGW, the tour will last 90 minutes, starting at the conference hotel and ending at the Lillian & Albert Small Jewish Museum, 701 Third Street, NW (corner of G Street). The fee is $15 per person, paid in advance by July 31.

Preparing for the walking tour
Comfort-wise, Washington can be very hot and humid in the summer, so be sure to wear a hat, use sunscreen and bring water. Those on Saturday's tour may wish to bring along a dairy or vegetarian snack or bag lunch to eat at the last stop. The entire tour is within the Washington Eruv, which allows Jews observing Shabbat to carry certain things.

Pick up some background about Jewish Washington by clicking selections under Jewish History in D.C. at the left, and leafing through “Jewish Washington: Scrapbook of an American Community” or “Through the Lens: Jeremy Goldberg’s Washington,” both on the JHSGW Web site.
