Virtual Tour of the Gombin Synagogue

October 25, 2020 2:00 pm | Virtual Gombin Tour

About 50 Gombiners and friends from the U.S., U.K., Poland, Europe, and Israel participated in a ½ hour virtual tour of the iconic Gombin Synagogue; Bernie Guyer led the tour.  That Synagogue was at the center of the town’s Jewish life for more than 200 years.  Photographs, the scale model of the synagogue, and an excerpt of the virtual video tour of the Synagogue’s interior are shown; Anita Greenbaum Brush reads from her father’s memoire of Yom Kippur in Gombin.  The tour concludes with renderings of the proposed memorial plaque installation that is currently pending approval.
