Rona Lynn Berns of Los Angeles came across this beautifully restored synagogue during an October visit to New York. "Eldridge Street Synagogue was the first great house of worship built in 1887 by East European Jews on New York's Lower East Side," she says. "The congregation has never missed Sabbath services since 1887." It was Berns' first vacation since retiring from the Los Angeles Public Library. She used a Canon PowerShot G10 to capture this shot.
