Historic Alexandria is partnering with Alexandria Historical Society to bring you their monthly lecture series.

From the first Jewish immigrants to Alexandria in the 1850s to a thriving microcosm of Jewish life today, Jewish Alexandrians have helped shape and been shaped by their city. Lecturer Mark Livingston will introduce audiences to several Jewish synagogues, merchants, Civil War soldiers, and mayors, and uncover history hidden in plain site along King Street and the surrounding area. Mark Livingston, a computer scientist by profession, has been a volunteer tour guide for the Lillian & Albert Small Capital Jewish Museum (formerly the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington) since 2004. He helped author the walking tour CJM offers of Jewish Old Town Alexandria and has led the tour since its inception. He resided in Alexandria from 2001 through 2016.
