During the virtual walking tour presentation, you will learn the story of one Jewish neighborhood in Washington DC and watch the neighborhood change with time as we move from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement to current day. This virtual tour will lead you into the historic heart of Jewish life, visiting four former synagogues in the 7th Street neighborhood which was once a hub of Jewish commercial and religious life in the nation’s capital. We’ll examine cross cultural connections and learn about how many communities lived together in one neighborhood that was always changing. Our tour will end with a sneak peek of the Capital Jewish Museum, which will open to the public in 2022.
