Join Ami Greener on a walking tour about notable Jewish contributions to DC history. This tour goes through the Judiciary Square and Gallery Place neighborhoods highlighting the stories of Jewish-American Washingtonians who made their mark. Learn the answers to such questions as, who was the first US president to visit a DC synagogue while in office, and why he donated $10? Why did the first synagogue built in DC have wheels? Which historic synagogue was saved at the last minute from turning into a nightclub? And who were the first Jews to live in this new city on the Potomac?
This 2 hour tour begins at the corner of H and 8th street and ends at the recently opened Capital Jewish Museum! If you wish to enter the museum with Ami at the end of the tour, write to him at email@example.com so he can make a reservation.
