Take a guided tour of our historic synagogue building -- built in 1876. Sit in an original pew and hear what life was like for the 38 immigrant families who built the first synagogue in Washington, D.C. Learn about the physical changes to the building -- both inside and out -- and the move of the building that forever changed its future and secured its place in our nation's capital.
Please be advised that our historic sanctuary is accessible only via staircase to the second floor. Let us know prior to your tour if members of your group are unable to climb the stairs. We will make arrangements for their visit to be comfortable and enjoyable. No food is allowed in our historic building.
