Dear LitvakSig~

Circa 1910, Ben Zion Black, a recently arrived Jewish Lithuanian
immigrant sign painter, was hired by Congregation Chai Adam in
Burlington, Vermont, to paint a two story synagogue mural. The story
behind this mural and the current drive to salvage and preserve
this rare example of Jewish religious folk art can be seen on pages
A13 & A19 in the Jan 31, 2014 print edition of the NY Times and
also read online at

Shabbat Shalom,
