Sixth and I Synagogue tickets—A hub of Jewish life in our nation’s capital
In 1899, one of Washington D.C.’s Jewish congregations made plans for a new synagogue. Little did they know they were not just marking a founding step for America’s Jewry—they were building one of D.C.’s longest lasting and most well-known Jewish landmarks, the Sixth and I Synagogue. All kinds of events are currently held at the site. The Adas Israel Congregation began construction on the synagogue in 1906.

The building changed hands to an Episcopalian church, which owned it for more than 50 years. But as the city changed, congregants moved away, and the building was almost sold to be turned into a nightclub. The local Jewish community banded together, raised funds and rededicated the gorgeous edifice for use as a Jewish community center. It reopened its doors in 2003.

It’s hard not to notice the 95-year-old building, which stands out with its domes, spires and fine masonry. Stained glass windows line the walls, and 1,000 people can fill its cathedral-like halls. Local educational and cultural events are held regularly there, including classes and concerts.
