The 143-year-old little synagogue that could was rolled down the block, where it will become a museum. No, it wasn’t an act of God. The Adas Israel synagogue was moved a block down G Street Northwest on Wednesday morning.

DC’s oldest synagogue was literally picked up and moved

Workers move Adas Israel Synagogue, the oldest synagogue in Washington, down the street. It wasn’t much of a schlep — just under two blocks — and all told, the holy rolling took less than an hour.

Historic synagogue makes its final move

The oldest standing synagogue in Washington — which once housed Adas Israel Congregation and will soon become part of the Capital Jewish Museum — made the third and final leg of its journey Wednesday, a roughly block-and-a-half trek to its permanent location at the southwest corner of 3rd and F Streets in downtown Washington.

D.C.’s Oldest Synagogue Is About To Move For The Third (And Last) Time

D.C.’s first and oldest synagogue is also almost certainly its most nomadic. The original home of Adas Israel is about to make its second move in as many years, and its third over the course of its storied history.
