When the Presbyterian Church split into Independent Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Alabama in 1915, they needed a place to start from. They started their Church in the Sanctuary of Temple Emanu-El. The Church remained there for 7 years, until they had built themselves a new home. City blocks apart, but still sharing the same Highland Avenue, in Birmingham, Alabama.
Depicted in stain glass is the Rabbi gifting the Church a candelabra, two of them. Then i saw the candelabras & I was blown away.
Last night was their 100 year anniversary. We all shared a Sanctuary & it was a beautiful place to be.
