Sussman in the City: Origins of the Synagogue - out of bldg.

Sussman in the City: Origins of the Synagogue
Wednesday, February 6, 7:30 p.m.

Out of building. Our prayer book correctly proclaims that "the synagogue is the sanctuary of Israel." But what do we know about the origin of the synagogue? When did it start? Where did it start? Who was in charge of the early synagogue? Come and learn about the unknown and contested history of Judaism's most familiar institutional expression. Space is limited. For information and to RSVP, contact Pam: [email protected] or call 215-887-8702 by 2/1/19.
