Repairs at Oldest DC Synagogue
The Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington, which is housed
in the former Adas Israel Synagogue, the oldest surviving synagogue building
in the Greater Washington area, has begun a program of gradual building
conservation. This past year, the hand-wrought iron fence and building
gutters and downspouts were painted, masonry repairs were made to chimneys,
the roof was patched, and historically accurate window blinds were installed.
Plans are to repair and conserve the sanctuary windows next year.
