From “Little Jerusalem” to the “Lost Mural”: Preserving Jewish & Immigrant Heritage
Ilsley Public Library
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.
