Winter, 1965

In the winter of 1965, Central Synagogue began excavation for the construction of its new Community House at 123 East 55th Street.

Fourteen Religious School students and their teacher participated in a special ceremony with Rabbis David Seligson and Lewis Bogage and the Religious School principal, Philip Kravis. They had all come from their School/Community House building at 35 East 62nd Street for the occasion.

Today the construction, completed in 1966, is the home to all of Central Synagogue’s education programs for ages 0-120.
