The Jewish Historical Society (701 3rd St NW) let us know about a lunchtime lecture about the east end neighborhood of DC this Wednesday, September 2. Folks can register here…on to the details:
The Old East End: Civil War to the Modern Revival
Wednesday, September 2, 2015, Noon – 1:00 p.m.
Soon the Jewish Historical Society’s synagogue will be on the move again, this time to the corner of Third & F Streets, NW. Its surrounding neighborhood is no stranger to change and has a colorful and ever-evolving history.
Learn about the people and communities who once lived here from Professor Wallace J. Mlyniec of Georgetown University Law Center. Professor Mlyniec, a prolific researcher and writer on neighborhood history, has been involved in all of the Law Center’s expansions since 1980. Get a sneak peak!
Neighborhood Program Partners: Georgetown University Law Center, Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2C02, DC Public Library Special Collections Department, Historical Society of Washington, D.C., Chinese Community Church, Goethe Institut Washington, Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, and Holy Rosary Church
