Lecture by architectural historian Clare Lise Kelly.

The depth of Maryland’s Jewish heritage is reflected in its wide range of synagogue architecture.   With a history extending from the early settlement of German Jews to the influx of Russian Jews, to a post-war suburban population, this presentation explores the evolution from traditional revivalist styles to modern functional design, drawing on examples in Baltimore City and Montgomery County.

Clare Lise Kelly, retired M-NCPPC Architectural Historian, is the author of Montgomery Modern: Modern Architecture in Montgomery County, Maryland, 1930-1979, and recipient of the Paul H. Kea medal for Architectural Advocacy, the highest honor of AIA Potomac Valley, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

As part of the 2019 Doors Open Baltimore festival, take a special tour of the historic Lloyd Street Synagogue with an architecture focus! Admission on October 6th is FREE.

History of Synagogue Music in London @ London | England | United Kingdom

This lecture by Cantor Eliot Alderman will consider some of the main musical developments since then, beginning with the Sephardi and Ashkenazi synagogues which stood practically side-by-side in the City of London for 250 years. He will examine the birth of the Anglo-Jewish choral tradition, the split with the Reform movement and its musical consequences, and the new music brought more recently by immigrants from Eastern Europe and Arab lands.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture
