<b>A Look at Our History: November 2012</b>

For many years Central Synagogue has joined with our neighbor, St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, for Thanksgiving services. In the mid 1970s, while St. Peter’s was replacing their 1905 Gothic style church building, they worshipped at Central Synagogue.

The new building for St. Peter’s Lutheran Church was integrated into the design of Citicorp Center and opened in 1977. While they were our guests at Central Synagogue, their bulletin board was displayed on Central’s building. This photo is of St. Peter’s last announcement on their board at Central Synagogue, in which they profess “We love you madly - Shalom.”
