From Little Jerusalem to the Lost Mural: Preserving Jewish and Immigrant Heritage

Digital Event
March 2, 2022: 7:00 pm

Note: due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this talk will only be offered online, via Zoom. Advance registration is required for this event.

In 1885, a group of Lithuanian immigrants settled in Burlington’s Old North End, where they transplanted their religious traditions and culture. Archivists Aaron Goldberg and Jeff Potash describe the “Lost Mural,” a rare survivor of the lost genre of European painted synagogues, and tell the story of conserving the mural in Burlington.

This event is hosted by the Norwich Public Library and the Norwich Historical Society.
