Beth Hamedrash Hagodol, a historic synagogue in Lower East Side in Manhattan, was founded in 1852 for the Russian and Eastern European congregations. In the late 20th century the Jewish population of Lower East Side dwindled, and the synagogue, even though it had a landmark status, was allowed to slowly deteriorate. In the summer of 2017, the building went up in flames and was largely destroyed in a suspicious fire/arson.
IN MEMORIAM pieces are created per order, one-by-one, with an advanced technique of 3-D Sandstone Printing. The porcelain-like material allows for fine details, previously unattainable in our miniatures. Each piece is hand-finished, sealed, and consecutively numbered. It measures 4” by 2.75” by 3” high. No more than 200 will be made.
