Mission Statement

The new Capital Jewish Museum will inspire visitors to connect, reflect and act: connect across families and diverse communities, reflect on the relevance of the past to today, and act on behalf of their communities and values.

Description

For nearly 60 years, as the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington, we collected and shared stories about the unique nature of Jewish life in our nation's capital - a history that is at once local, national, and international.

In 1969, we saved the city's oldest synagogue building by moving it three blocks from its original site in the heart of the historic Jewish neighborhood to the corner of Third & G Streets, NW. Community contributions and a gift from Lillian & Albert Small helped restore the synagogue, which is listed on the National Register for Historic Places.

For the next 40 years, the synagogue served as the centerpiece of all our activities including an expanding archival collection, exhibitions, educational programs, and neighborhood walking tours.

In 2018, the JHSGW adopted our new name - Lillian & Albert Small Capital Jewish Museum - as we prepare to build and launch a new public museum.
