At sunset, The Sixth and I (@SixthandI) Synagogue featuring the iconic cornerstone laid in 1906:

The congregation holds a cornerstone laying ceremony on November 22, 1906, in the presence of government officials, Christian clergy from nearby churches, Adas Israel officials and members of its building committee. They place a time capsule inside of the cornerstone, containing copies of Jewish newspapers, coins minted in 1906, congregation membership lists, copies of the United States and Adas Israel constitutions, a copy of the April 15, 1865 edition of the New York Herald, giving an account of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, the fall of Richmond, and other articles.
