Liberty Bell Rimonim

1961

These Rimonim, modeled after the American Liberty Bell, were commissioned by the Congregation in honor of the 70th birthday of Judge Edgar J. Nathan Jr. in 1961. Judge Nathan, a descendant of one of the oldest American Jewish families, was an active civic leader. The Rimonim highlight his deep roots and involvement in American life, together with his outstanding leadership in Shearith Israel and the larger Jewish community.
