- Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
- Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

- Description of Subject Matter: Washington Hebrew Congregation, Washington's oldest Jewish congregation, was formed in 1852 and is associated with Reform Judaism. The congregation, originally essentially German, dedicated its 8th Street temple in 1898. President William McKinley attended the ground-breaking ceremonies.
Although not a copy of the famous Berlin Synagogue on Oranienburger Strasse, dedicated in 1866 and designed by Eduard Knoblauch, Washington's 8th Street Temple is reminiscent of the 3200-seat Berlin synagogue. Both buildings, in turn, recall the famous Dresden Synagogue built by Gottfried Semper in 1840.
The building has been home to Greater New Hope Baptist Church since 1954, the church having been organized in 1933.
Washington Hebrew Congregation is now located at 3935 Macomb Street, N.W.

New Hope vision is to spread the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be a safe haven for a lost and hurting humanity by ministering to the total person - through worship, by sharing and studying the Word of God and throughout the community, becoming financially self sustaining, supporting family values, and supporting those who are short-term or career missionaries.
New Hope Baptist Church was organized in November 1981 and held its first worship service at the John Bayne Elementary School. In November of 1986, the church purchased housing property located at 3400 Pinevale Avenue, Forestville, Maryland. In 1993, after a lot of planning, prayers, permit, and patience, the New Hope Baptist Church family moved into its present renovated structure. Two years later, in pursuit of our Pastor's vision additional property was purchased at 3415 Pumphrey Drive, Forestville, Maryland. This property serves as the church's Annex 1.
