Posted by Oyster on May 10, 2007
An interesting post on BayJews.org, that I linkified. It’s not very complete, and is SF-centric. But it’s a fun short list. Feel free to leave comments below with your additional suggestions, or corrections!
Ask JCIR re top ten Jewish sites

1. Feel: George Segal`s the Survivor sculpture at the Lincoln Park, near the Legion of honor
