Lisa Newman and podcast producer and Yiddish Book Center fellow Zeke Levine take The Shmooze on the road to Boston for a visit and tour of the Vilna Shul. Vilna’s Executive Director, Barnet Kessel, provides a private tour of this historic landmark—the last immigrant era synagogue building that exists in downtown Boston. Barnet talks about the Shuls’ history, the building’s unique architecture, shares plans for the restoration of the old-wall murals, and answers our many questions.
