Choral Synagogues in the Russian Empire @ Webinar - online | Bentonville | Arkansas | United States

Third and final lecture in a series of talks about the art and architecture of synagogues in eastern Europe by Vladimir Levin, director of the Center for Jewish Art.

Learn about the “Choral” synagogues that emerged in the Russian Empire in the mid-19th century and were not initially accepted yet gradually changed to be the synagogues of the social elite, with decorum and good music.

The series of three lectures is devoted to the history and architecture of synagogues in eastern Europe, from the 16th and 17th centuries until the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. The talks deal with the synagogue as both an architectural space and a public place, discussing features and functions which are far beyond the narrow realm of religion. 

The lectures are a program presented by BEIT AVI CHAIa Jewish cultural hub in Jerusalem dedicated to the creation, development and expression of Jewish thought and ideas.
