Senior VP of Eastern State Penitentiary Sean Kelley discusses the restoration of the Alfred W. Fleisher Memorial Synagogue in the historic prison. The inclusion of a synagogue was unique to the Penitentiary in the early years of its operation, so in 2009 Eastern State restored the ruined space in order to preserve this important moment in Jewish American history.
