Sixth & I

Sixth & I Historic Synagogue is a synagogue and cultural center. The Adas Israel congregation constructed the building in 1908. In 1951, the building was sold to the Turner Memorial A.M.E. Church. In 2001, the A.M.E. church moved, and plans for the building were uncertain but included the possibility of a nightclub. Shelton Zuckerman, along with Abe Pollin and Douglas Jemal, then redeveloped the building back into its historic use, basing the work on old photographs of the building. It reopened as Sixth & I in 2004.
