Historic prison at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia is being refurbished after 35 years of nonuse. The small synagogue tucked into a narrow alleyway off Cellblock 7 still feels like a holy place. It was built in the early 1920's under the leadership of philathropist Alfred Fleisher. Mr. Fleisher attended all Jewish services in the prison until his death in 1928 and the Jewish inmates named the synagouge The Alfred Fleisher Memorial Synagogue "as a lasting memorial of the kindness and justice Fleisher has always shown."
