From Little Jerusalem to the Lost Mural:  Preserving Jewish and Immigrant Heritage

In 1885, a group of Lithuanian immigrants settled in Burlington’s Old North End, where they transplanted their religious traditions and culture.  Archivists Aaron Goldberg and Jeff Potash describe the “Lost Mural”, a rare survivor of the lost genre of European painted synagogues and tell the story of conserving the mural in Burlington.
