PHOTOS: Lost Shul Mural

Work is underway to protect and restore a rare piece of pre-Holocaust Jewish art in Burlington, Vermont. In 1910, the congregation of the Chai Adam synagogue in the city's Old North End commissioned artist Ben Zion Black to paint a mural inside their wooden synagogue. Now known as the Lost Shul Mural, the colorful and rare piece is at the center of an international fundraising effort aimed at protecting and restoring the artwork.
