A Temple, a tour, and a party! On Friday of the National Symposium, we are bringing all Symposium guests together for a series of specially-planned events including that will allow for discussion of challenging topics while also highlighting and celebrating iconic modern sites in the region.
We start the day traveling via bus to Beth Sholom Synagogue, the only synagogue designed by Frank Lloyd Wright during his long career. Beth Sholom is a work of art in glass and concrete. But with its design commemorating Mount Sinai, the towering, light-filled space is also a symbol the of faith and undying spirit of the Jewish people and the story of how its congregation is dedicated to preserving the architecture is tale we can all learn from.
Guests will be treated to a tour of Beth Sholom by Helene Mansheim, Lead Docent & Visitor Center Manager for the Beth Sholom Preservation Foundation.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Note: Food and beverages are not allowed in the main sanctuary.
Buses will pick up Symposium guests from the Loew's Hotel front entrance and the University of Pennsylvania (34th Street near the Weitzman School of Design) at 8:30 am Friday morning.
Morning Plenary Sessions
Two plenary sessions will cover important and challenging topics in modern preservation.
