In 1990, New York artist and architectural historian Jeremy Nadel began painting a series of synagogues in the New York area which had been abandoned, neglected or converted to use by other religious denominations. On Tuesday, a show of the paintings, "The Synagogues of Nadel," will go on exhibit at the Jewish Community Center. Aside from the New York synagogues, the exhibit will include a Nadel painting of a former Baltimore synagogue, Shaarei Zion, at 3459 Park Heights Ave. ++ On Monday, the evening before the show opens, Nadel will give a slide show and talk, "Synagogues: More than Monuments of Culture?" at the JCC, followed by a guided tour of the exhibit. Admission to the program is free but a ticket is required and may be obtained at the front desk of the JCC/Park Heights.
