The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports that Congregation B’nai Avraham, 117 Remsen Street (between Clinton and Henry), Brooklyn Heights’ only Orthodox synagogue, has been awarded a $10,000 “Sacred Sites” grant by the New York Landmarks Conservancy. The funds will be used to assist in restoration of the facade of the 1850s vintage brownstone faced Italiante style building that houses the synagogue, which joins the Heights’ Grace Church as a Sacred Sites grant winner.
