KI Begins to Refurbish Stained Glass Windows

Congregation Keneseth Israel, which calls itself Louisville’s Landmark Synagogue, had the first of its 12 stained glass windows reinstalled on April 17. The window was removed three months ago for repair, refurbishment and restoration, using 21st century technologies. Forty-one years of exposure to Louisville’s weather quirks slowly took their toll.

Each of the 14-foot tall hand crafted windows tells the story of a time in Jewish history. The re-installed window celebrates Lag Ba’Omer.

The entire project is being personally guided by one of America’s leading restoration specialists, Mominee Studios of Evansville, IN.
