Baha'i Faith Center
The Baha'i Faith Center at 5713 16th Street NW is a multi-national faith reflecting the diversity of the world at-large and communities in particular. The Baha'i faith is one of the youngest monotheistic religions in the world. Founded in the 1800s in Persia by Baha'u'llah, the Baha'i emphasize the spiritual unity of humanity and see religious history as a series of messengers or prophets sent by God/Allah/Yahweh at appropriate and needful times in human history.
Prior this location, the Baha'i Center of Washington was located down on Massachusetts Avenue in a building that is now owned and occupied by the Human Rights Campaign.
UPDATE at 8:30 p.m.: I just realized that I mixed up the Baha'i Faith Center with the B'nai Brith. It is the latter that use to be headquartered down on Mass Ave. The B'nai Brith is a Jewish humanitarian, human rights, and advocacy group. After selling their building to the Human Rights Campaign, they relocated to 2020 K Street NW. My apologies for any confusion.
