NORWICH—The City of Norwich's year-long centennial celebration continues this weekend with a special event that just so happens to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of one of the city's prominent and stoic landmarks.
In partnership with The Norwich Centennial Committee, the Norwich Jewish community will be hosting the celebration in light of the 100 years since construction of The Norwich Jewish Center and Synagogue.
Likewise, the event will serve as another opportunity for community members to discover the history of the City's turn-of-the century colonial revival architecture, commerce and religious and cultural history.
In 1955, the Eaton residence was acquired by a group of local congregants. These congregants included a number of German-Jewish refugees who have since used the building as both a community center and synagogue. The Norwich Jewish Center's congregants range from Orthodox to Reform, as it is the only facility of its kind in the immediate area.
