Voices of the Vigil:
DC's Soviet Jewry Movement
This new exhibition tells the story of our community's role in the struggle for freedom for Soviet Jewry. In addition to holding a 20-year daily vigil across the street from the Soviet Embassy, Washington Jews organized rallies and marches, waged letter-writing campaigns to pressure politicians, sent packages and holiday greetings to refuseniks, and visited Jews in the Soviet Union. Read the rave reviews!

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.
