Chicago's Jewish Architects: A Legacy of Modernism

Chicago Jewish Historical Society

Birthplace of the skyscraper, Chicago played an important role in the development of architectural Modernism. This great legacy includes the contributions of many Jewish architects, some now famous and some who have been overlooked. In this presentation Julia Bachrach, historian, author, and preservation planning consultant, will highlight the work of Chicago's Jewish architects from the 1890s through the 1970s. A social hour with kosher pastries will follow the program. 

General admission: $10 per person at the door. CJHS and Temple Beth Israel members free.
