The oldest synagogue of Washington DC and the whole District rolled down the 3rd street to its new home, the site of the future Capital Jewish Museum, Wednesday.
The massive platform with 12 sets of wheels carried the building one block down the street.
The synagogue building will be a part of the upcoming Capital Jewish Museum that is set to open its doors in 2021.
The executive director... Еще Kara Blond says the new construction will «embrace the historic building connecting up the old with the new».
However it’s not the first move of this synagogue, the first one happened in 1969 to make a way for the underground system and then again two years ago during a construction of a new neighbourhood.
The construction was built in 1876 and during its long history it has been a home to Greek Orthodox and African American churches, a bicycle shop, deli, dentist, soap and coffee shop, Jewish grocers becoming a historic landmark
