The colorful, folk-art style of mural decoration popular in European synagogue interiors in the 18th and 19th centuries exists in only a handful of places today, including the Chai Adam mural in Burlington, Vermont, painted in 1910 by Ben Zion Black, a Lithuanian immigrant to Vermont. Aaron and Jeff will share their historical research and the journey of the Lost Mural. They will discuss the origins of the Burlington, Vermont Jewish Community, its connections to the Lost Mural, and the efforts to preserve, restore, and educate the public about the lost genre of wooden synagogue art.
