Walnut Street Synagogue
145 Walnut St
The Walnut Street Synagogue is the oldest surviving synagogue in Chelsea, a city that was one-third Jewish at the time the synagogue was built in 1909. It boasts a series of wall and ceiling frescoes painted by Jewish immigrant artists and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The synagogue’s Rabbi, Lila Kagedan, is an educator in the areas of global health, ethics, religion and education and in 2016 became the first female rabbi of an Orthodox congregation. She has very graciously offered to spend time with us during our tour. Meet at North Station at 9:15 a.m. for the 9:40 a.m. train to Chelsea. Return on the 12:03 or 12:32 p.m. train. BHV members and their guests. Pay individually for transportation ($1.10 for seniors).
