Our Beautiful Building: a lens at Sacred Space through history at the "little red synagogue"

The intra-communal influences within Burlington's tight-knit and contained Jewish community are apparent in the synagogue art, style, and design of Burlington's past and present synagogues. Barrie will be holding a talk about the changes that have taken place in the Ahavath Gerim synagogue interior since the building's construction in 1885, and how each congregation that has worshiped in the space--including Ruach haMaqom--has left a mark on the one-hundred thirty-four year old sanctuary.
