About the Author

Phyllis Myers for the Jewish Historical Society of Greater WashingtonThe Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington and its Lillian & Albert Small Jewish Museum preserve, chronicle and present the story of the local Jewish community through archival collections, exhibits, educational programs, publications, and the restoration and preservation of the oldest synagogue building in the nation’s capital. The Museum is located in the historic 1876 Adas Israel Synagogue—the oldest in the Washington, DC, area. The synagogue is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the DC Inventory of Historic Sites (PDF), and the Historic American Buildings Survey. It is an Official Project of the Save America’s Treasures program.
