CITY INTRO[edit]

The first jew settled here at the end of the 18th century. However the city flourished in the post world war 2 era and there is not much here for the jewish history buff. The Adas Israel was dedicated in 1876. It is now a conservative synagouge. The original structure hosts Lillian & Albert Small Jewish Museum. The Musuem is run by the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington, which gives building tours and walking tours. B’nai B’rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum was housed in Washington until 2002, when due to money constraints the museum was closed and archived. Appointments for visits and tours may be arranged in advance by calling 202-857-6647 or e-mailing museum@bnaibrith.org. [1]

Jewish Geography

One will not find much pertaining to modern Jewish life, like kosher restaurants or shuls. The Jewish communities are mostly in the suburbs; Silver Spring, Rockville. There is one orthodox minyan in town Kesher Israel (Georgetown Synagogue - Washington D.C.). There are many hotels within walking distance. However some prefer to stay across the river to get cheaper rates.
