Rishon's old synagogue then and now

.

As we saw in the previous post, Rishon LeZion was founded in 1882 by Jews who came from the Russian Empire to farm the land of Israel. 
Here is another mural on a wall in present-day Rishon, now a city.


Here is that same old synagogue, presently undergoing restoration.
It's going to be really nice. 


The airbrushed paintings were made by Hillel Lazarov who has a school for teaching mural making.

Excellent idea to establish the history museum next to the old synagogue.

It's interesting how a subtle change in the synagogue's paint color makes it seem like a different building than seen in the mural. It looks so much more contemporary than a structure from 1883. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
