I thought I'd take a day out of my Urban Renovations series to honor Jewish Passover. Tikvat Israel is a beautiful synagogue located on Boulevard and Grove Avenue across from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Again, thanks to Nicola of Wiesbaden Daily Photo for her help while I'm out of town.

    Anne - It's painted with a watercolor effect to mimic the old postcards that you find all around Richmond. I guess I should have mentioned that.

    Tikvat Israel is not a synagogue, it is a Messianic Church that bought a former synagogue building. The Jewish community in now recognizes it as a synagogue, and considers the label of synagogue offensive for a congregation that is essentially Christian.
