Artist's Description

I painted this because I was so upset that this beautiful synagogue had been sold and I wanted to remember it the way it was
Acrylic on cardboard
22″ × 26″

The Adath Jeshurun congregation built its synagogue at 375 King Edward Avenue in 1904. Lowertown was home to Ottawa’s first Jewish families in the prior decades. With onion domes and a neo-Byzantine caste, it brought an eastern exoticism to the street. As recently as the late 1950s it was flanked by modest woodframed cottages.

In 1957, when they merged with another Lowertown congregation and moved to the Beth Shalom temple on Chapel Street, the synagogue was converted into the Ottawa Jewish Memorial Chapel for funeral services. More recently it has become the house of worship for an Evangelical Christian group.
