Madison History: Gates of Heaven Synagogue

Last Monday I was bored on my day off and I decided to go film some historical stuff.  I remembered there is this old synagogue in James Madison Park here in Madison.  Dating back to the 1860’s and moved to it’s present location in the 1970’s, it is one of the oldest synagogue buildings in the US. Now it is owned by the city of Madison and is rented out for events.

 

More information about Gates of Heaven can be found on the City of Madison website.
