Captured Moment: An Iconic Landmark in Boro Park’s Center

Captured Moment: An Iconic Landmark in Boro Park’s Center

YS Gold 

This week’s captured moment takes us to an edifice in the center of Boro Park which has served the community for decades, in multiple capacities. It is a beautiful building which was organically constructed as a masonic temple.

Can our readers correctly identify this landmark? 


Answer to last weeks’ captured moment: 

One of the first addresses where Reb Yaker Biegeleisen sold his seforim in Boro Park, before moving to the Lower East Side, was a home at 1427 53rd Street. His father, Reb Yosef Chaim Biegeleisen, lived in the home, and was niftar in this home. 

The building has since been torn down, and a new one built in its place—but the foundations of Torah scholarship, and the dissemination of seforim in Boro Park of yore, remain deeply rooted at this address.
