Petition Started to Save Norfolk Street Synagogue
We continue to follow developments at Beth Hamedrash Hagadol, the endangered synagogue at 60 Norfolk St. The synagogue has asked the Landmarks Preservation Commission for permission to demolish the 1850 building, which was protected in 1967. In January a local preservation organization, Friends of the Lower East Side, urged supporters to contact the commission, urging it to reject demolition. Now the group has started an online petition. You can find the petition here.
