c 1920 Brass Star of David Chandelier from Chicago Synagogue

About the Item

Historical and significant brass electrified Star of David from the last grand Chicago synagogue, Agudas Achim. Beautiful when lit. Hard to believe these were hung as chandeliers in the Synagogue. Please see additional images to view star installed in the Synagogue. Architect Henry Dubin designed the building in Romanesque-Revival style with Art Deco and Spanish touches. The building was dedicated in 1925 with seating for 1,750 to 2,200 people. The synagogue fell into disrepair in the 1970's as membership declined. The building has been since converted into condos. The facade, foyer and grand staircase were saved and incorporated into the design.
