Aaron Goldberg & Jeff Potash

When: Wed., Dec. 1, 7 p.m.

In 1910, Burlington’s Chai Adam synagogue commissioned a jewel-toned, Eastern European-style mural from artist Ben Zion Black. In 1986, it was discovered gathering dust in the carpet store that had taken over the building. And in 2015, the mural was rescued and moved to Ohavi Zedek Synagogue, where it has been on display and undergoing meticulous restoration ever since. Jeff Potash and Aaron Goldburg, the archivists who spearheaded the preservation efforts, talk to the Chittenden County Historical Society about the mural’s journey and Vermont’s Jewish history.

Price: Free; preregister.
