How did synagogue design change over time and place? What surprising architectural details reveal the hidden history of the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue? All will be revealed including numerological significance in the building’s stained glass, secret messages in the building’s painted designs, and religious symbols that recall ancient rites.
