SundayArts is Now NYC-ARTS
Restoring the Temple
Posted: December 10th, 2008

The Eldridge Street Synagogue on the Lower East Side is a place where thousands worshiped, but which time and indifference almost destroyed. This is the story of a landmark building that would have been destroyed had it not been for the efforts of a few dedicated preservationists.

    This short documentry is wonderful in telling the story of the preservation of this grand & important building & explaining why this building should be preserved. Even more important, it tells us a truly inspiring story of how one person can pick up a challenge & make it her work, a work which benefits so many of us.Thank you for this.
