Day 679

Congregation Ramath Orah

November 8th, 2013

This synagogue was originally the West Side Unitarian Church. Ground was broken here in 1921 with a larger building in mind (which would have looked like this), but financial troubles forced the church to scale back its plans. Congregation Ramath Orah, founded by the former chief rabbi of Luxembourg and a few dozen other countrymen who had fled Nazi persecution, has met here since 1942.
