Prof. Stiefel heading to Augusta, GA to present research on Synagogues as museum spaces

Friends and alumni in the vicinity of Augusta, GA will want to attend Dr. Barry Stiefel’s upcoming presentation on October 22 entitled “The Other House Museum: places of worship and the case of synagogues”. The lecture is part of a grant funded series of architectural history lectures hosted by the Porter Fleming Foundation and Historic Augusta Incorporation. Dr. Stiefel will discuss religious spaces, and synagogues in particular, as oft-overlooked museums that can educate the public about under represented minority groups and cultural experiences. We hope Prof. Stiefel will respect the lecture for a Charleston audience!
