‘Synagogues of Philadelphia’ at Kehilat HaNahar in New Hope on Sunday

Author Ira A. Poliakoff will present a lively, interactive account of Philadelphia-area synagogues from his newly published book, using many rare photos depicting what could have been the spiritual home of your grandparents.

The presentation takes place on Sunday, May 5, from 12 to 1 p.m., at the Kehilat Hanahar Synagogue in New Hope.

Poliakoff’s illustrated talk traces the history of the Jewish people in Philadelphia through the eyes of more than 500 synagogue communities that have existed in the five-county Philadelphia region.

Poliakoff also authored the award-winning “Synagogues of Long Island.” He is a husband, father, grandfather and businessman who has always been active in synagogue activities, from youth director, field director and continuing involvement in synagogue life. His illustrated talk traces the history of the Jewish people in Philadelphia through the eyes of more than 500 synagogue communities that have existed in the five-county Philadelphia region.

The event is free and open to the public, and bagels, cream cheese and coffee will be provided.

Kehilat Hanahar, or “Little Schul by the River,” is located at 85 W. Mechanic St in New Hope; (215) 862-1912.
