Sunday Seminar: Louis Magaziner & Julian Francis Abele Story
January 13, 2019 @ 10:15 am - 11:15 am
Julian Abele, the first African American to graduate from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Architecture, and Louis Magaziner, the first Jew to graduate from the same school, forged a bond as students that endured for the rest of their lives.
In this illustrated presentation, Magaziner’s great-grandniece, Amy Cohen, explores this unusual friendship between two prominent Philadelphian architects. Members of the extended Magaziner family have been part of the Rodeph Shalom community for generations.
