Raise The Roof, Reconstructed Wooden Synagogue Roof at POLIN Museum #galicia


Jan Meisels Allen
 

For those of us who attended the outstanding IAJGS Conference in Warsaw
and visited the POLIN Museum we were in awe of the magnificent
reconstruction of the ceiling >from the Gwozdziec Synagogue -- the
centerpiece of the POLIN Museum. Temple Beth Am in Los Angeles, CA is
installing a replica in its chapel for Rosh Hashanah. There is a movie, Raise
the Roof, about the ceiling at the POLIN Museum which will be shown at
American Jewish University on September 27 at 1:00PM. Cost is $6.00.
