New York’s Landmarks Conservancy Awards Grants to Synagogues

The New York Landmark’s Conservancy, a private preservation organization,  has awarded $39,000 to historic houses of worship throughout New York City as part of the sacred Sites Program  Among the grant recipeints are four synagogues that have received funds:  The First Roumanian American, the Eldridge Street, the Beth Hamedrash Hagadol, and the Bialystoker Synagogues.

The Landmark’s Conservancy grants program, which has served as a model for similar efforts throughout the country, has encouraged others in New York to raise funds, as well.  The United Jewish Council of the East Side is one group that has been inspired by the Landmark’s Conservancy and has begun a separate drive for funding.

To learn more about the Landmark’s Conservancy’s Sacred Sites Program write Ken Lustbader,  NY Landmarks Conservancy, 141 Fifth Ave., NY, NY, 10010 or email or log on to NY Landmarks Conservancy online.
