Restoring Stories: Decorative Paint

Uncovering History in the Eldridge Street Synagogue

EverGreene is honored to be participating in the Museum at Eldridge Street’s Restoring Stories–a new series dedicated to analyzing the preservation, conservation, and restoration efforts at the Eldridge Street Synagogue.

Join Jeff Greene, our Executive Chairman and Founder, alongside Emily Sottile, our Director of Sacred Spaces,  to “peel back the paint” as they share their experience of working on the Eldridge Street Synagogue. They’ll speak to the 20-year long process of peeling back layers of decorative paint to uncover a bigger picture, as well as the decisions they made in order to preserve the stories, memories, and history embedded deep within one of the first synagogues built in the United States.

The virtual event will be held over Zoom from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm (EST) on Thursday, February 11. Click here to register.
