Historic synagogues like The Vilna Shul are places where Jews and non-Jews establish nostalgic and physical connections to the past. In the second session, “Ghosts in the Gallery: Historic Synagogues and American Jewish Religion,” Prof. Gross will discuss how these institutions encourage Jewish and non-Jewish visitors to feel nostalgia for Eastern European Jewish immigration histories, creating religious communities that include Jews, non-Jews, and ghostly ancestors.
