"The German-Jewish community settles along 7th Street in downtown Washington, DC as early as the 1850s. In 1876, Adas Israel dedicates its first synagogue building, with President Ulysses S. Grant in attendance, at the corner of 6th and G Streets, NW. Over the years, Adas Israel outgrows its home and eventually decides to build a larger synagogue in 1899. The congregation holds a cornerstone laying ceremony on November 22, 1906, in the presence of government officials, Christian clergy from nearby churches. With the dedication on January 6, 1908, Adas Israel becomes the third synagogue in a thriving Jewish neighborhood, A ceremony on April 22, 2004 marked the building's rededication as Sixth & I Historic Synagogue."
