|SPOKANE: Spokane County|
Temple Emanuel historical marker: Temple Emanuel was dedicated in 1892 on land donated by a Christian so that Jews would have a synagogue in Spokane. Five years ago, the marker was vandalized -- maliciously chiseled. JASHP repaired the damage and re-dedicated the marker. Last year, the marker again was vandalized. Again the marker was maliciously chiseled and seriously damaged. The city of Spokane Historic Preservation office, under the leadership of Emily Vance, undertook the effort to repair the marker. Working with a local foundry, Authentic Restoration Services, John Leinen and Brian Westmoreland donated their services, time and and professional skills to restore the marker to its original condition. The Jewish historical marker has been fully restored and proudly resited in a dignified setting. JASHP thanks the city of Spokane, Authentic Restoration Services and the members of community, all whom are not Jewish, for their help. Source:
