Augusta Jewish Museum

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money for Augusta Jewish Museum Inc (Augusta Jewish Museum), and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to the Jewish community of Augusta and its surrounding areas.
In May 2015, it was reported that the City of Augusta had plans to demolish old Synagogue building and the Court of the Ordinary building to expand the parking lot of the adjacent Municipal Building. The city owned both of them. The old court building was built in 1860 to be fireproof and to store all city records. The synagogue building was built in 1869 and is the oldest synagogue building still standing in the State of Georgia. Furthermore, it is in the top 10 of synagogue buildings still standing in the US. A large group of Augustans from both the Jewish and non-Jewish community, attended every City Council meeting until the city agreed not to demolish the buildings. The oldest standing synagogue in Georgia has been saved from the wrecking ball, however, the real work has just begun.
Your support will:
RESTORE this classic Greek-Revival-style architectural gem to its former glory. 
ENHANCE the Telfair Street Cultural Strip
PROVIDE a new tourist attraction to the ever-increasing number of visitors to Augusta.
CREATE a fine venue for all types of social and cultural events.
RECOGNIZE the important role of Jews in Georgia and Augusta's history.
GIVE EVIDENCE of our personal thanks for the bedrock of Judaism in other religions and cultures. 
REMEMBER the six million innocent victims who perished in the Holocaust.
