Visit the Garnethill synagogue as part of the Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival, an annual event celebrating the city’s architecture, culture & heritage through a free programme of open buildings and events taking place over one week in September.
It is Scotland’s first purpose-built Synagogue. As well as continuing to be an active place of worship, the building is the home of the Scottish Jewish Archive Centre and Museum.
A walking tour of Jewish York, led by Nigel Grizzard — who organizes Jewish heritage tours in Yorkshire.
A commemoration of Theodor Schreier, the architect of the synagogue in St. Pölten, will include the unveiling of a commemorative plaque to the architect and his wife — both Holocaust victims who died in the Terezin ghetto/camp north of Prague — and a memorial symphonic concert featuring the music of Brahms, Bloch, Dvorak, Janacek, and Schulhoff.
The synagogue is now the home of the Institut für jüdische Geschichte Österreichs — Institute for Austrian Jewish History.
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.
