4:00 PM - 6:00 PMThe Beacon Historical Society, 61 Leonard Street, Beacon, NY 12508

 

In May of 2021, the Beacon Hebrew Alliance celebrated 100 years of serving the community in both religious practices and community programs. In collaboration with the Beacon Historical Society, we set out to discover the history of the formation of the synagogue and the story of Jewish immigrants to our city. The month-long exhibition at the Historical Society will feature materials from both the BHS and BHA’s archives, oral histories, photos and stories from members, as well as genealogical research and translations from the Yiddish press. The interactive walking tour is an app that you can use as you walk down Main Street to discover the rich history of Jewish enterprise in Beacon.

Come to the opening reception, and celebrate the amazing story of BHA and the incredible individuals and families who have kept the Jewish community going strong in Beacon. 

The exhibit will be on display from April 1-30 at Beacon Historical Society, admission is free.  There will also be an online version of the exhibition available in April on their website: https://www.beaconhistorical.org
