Jewish Life in Mr. Lincoln's City
One of the most important events in our nation's history, the Civil War forever altered American life. Washington and Alexandria were sites of intensive activity. This original exhibition tells stories of Jewish life in the capital city and the nearby Union-occupied Confederate city. This exhibition includes images from the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington's unique collections, supplemented by photographs from the Library of Congress, D.C. Public Library, and other local repositories.

Through the Lens:
Jeremy Goldberg’s Washington
In 1998, Jeremy Goldberg followed the path of Washington’s Jewish community by photographing the original and current sites of synagogues and other Jewish buildings. This exhibit traces Washington’s Jewish community from a tight cluster of late 19th-century synagogues downtown to new neighborhoods uptown and into the suburbs.
