News: Eldridge Street Synagogue Reopens

eldridge-street-synagogue-2Yesterday, the Eldridge Street Synagogue unveiled the final and last piece in its renovation that has taken over 20 years, since it was rediscovered and saved from decimation in the 1980s, a stained glass window by contemporary artist Kiki Smith, in collaboration with architect Deborah Gans. The window is made-up of swirling blues and an array of stars, which mimic the stars that can be seen throughout the synagogue. The contemporary style is in juxtaposition to the neo-moorish style architecture the original builders used.
The synagogue is a National Historic Landmark, originally built in 1887. You can read more about it’s important place in New York history here.
