SYNAGOGUES OF GREATER PHILADELPHIA
Thursday March 21, 2019
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Join us for our next presentation in our Making History Greater Series when Ira Poliakoff presents Synagogues of Greater Philadelphia.
Synagogues of Greater Philadelphia traces the history of the Jewish people in the greater Philadelphia region through the eyes of the more than five hundred synagogues that exist or have existed in the five-county Philadelphia area. Included are many illustrations and picture of synagogues no longer in use and reproductions of several historic documents. Ira Poliakoff, the author of the forthcoming book, Synagogues of Philadelphia, explored many libraries and archives to assemble this history.
