LA Historic Synagogues with Artist Hillel Smith

Artist Hillel Smith has been tracing and documenting re-purposed former synagogues around the country, including over forty in Los Angeles, discovering surprising mosaics of histories and faiths. Join us as he takes us on a journey that captures the dynamic evolution that defines local Jewish communities, and more broadly, Jewish life in this ever-changing urban environment.

About Hillel Smith:

Hillel Smith is an artist and designer focused on re-imagining Judaica with contemporary media. He has painted dynamic Jewish murals around the US, Israel, and Europe, and convened the first Jewish Street Art Festival in 2019. He revitalizes ancient rituals, encouraging creative reconsideration of religious practice through projects like Parsha Posters and GIF the Omer. Seeing Hebrew as the visual glue that binds Jews together across time and space, he also teaches Jewish typographic history, using print as a lens for Jewish life and culture. Making fun and engaging content is similarly the crux of his work as a designer for clients including HIAS, PJ Library, and Patton Oswalt. See his work at
