The Mural's History

Painted in 1910, the mural is one of the only surviving examples in the world of Eastern European synagogue folk art. It is a remnant that must be saved.

Restoration Efforts

Preserving, protecting, and restoring the mural will be a complicated project involving not only conservation but physically removing the mural from its building.


We need your help! The restoration and preservation of the mural is a massive undertaking for a small Jewish community. Please join us today and make a donation.
