Temple Shalom hosts the award-winning documentary movie “Raise the Roof,” as part of the Newton Festival of the Arts. The film chronicles the efforts of more than 300 people from 16 countries to build a replica of an ornate cupola ceiling of the Gwozdziec synagogue in Poland. All the 18th century wooden synagogues were destroyed by the Nazis. To learn more about the film, watch the trailer.
