Mayor Vincent C. Gray is scheduled to deliver his second State of the District address Feb. 7 at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, a cultural institution and community center that is a symbol of both the city’s multiculturalism and the mayor’s “One City” theme.

The synagogue has a racially diverse and ecumenical history. It was originally home to Adas Israel, one of D.C.’s oldest Jewish congregations. In 1951, the building was bought by Turner Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Church, which remained there until moving to a new facility 50 years later.

A group of civic leaders acquired and renovated the building and reopened it in 2004 as a non-denominational, non-membership-based synagogue that serves as a cultural and educational center for the entire D.C. community.

The State of the City address allows the mayor to report on the status of the city and his administration, and to outline his agenda for the coming year.

Last year, Gray delivered the speech at Eastern High School, where he emphasized a goal of improving the city’s public schools and creating more jobs.

The city’s jobless rate in 2011 dropped from 10.6 percent in November to 10.4 percent in December, but remains higher than the 9.6 percent rate in D.C. a year earlier, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
