Sixth and I Historic Synagogue

The rose window in the sanctuary of the Sixth and I historic synagogue in Washington DC's Chinatown.


The building's original 1908 rose window was removed when the building became occupied by a church. The current window was reproduced as part of the 2002 reconstruction by a team working from vintage photos of the original.
