Beaumont’s historic Byzantine Revival temple, Temple Emanuel, designed by Albert S. Gottleib in the 1920s, will host Heritage Happy Hour on Aug. 23 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

The temple, where you will view the six spectacular stained glass windows designed by the noted Jewish artist Ze'ev Raban, is steeped in religious history. The windows represent a significant event in the life of the principal prophets of Judaism: Jeremiah, Elijah, Elisha, Isaiah, Moses and Ezekial.

Heritage Happy Hour is always free to members of the Beaumont Heritage Society and $10 for non-members 21 and older.

Heritage Happy Hour is an ongoing partnership between the Beaumont Heritage Society and Giglio Distributing Co. typically held every other month, with each event highlighting an historical landmark, time, or exhibit, as well as a craft beer or brewery (wine and non-alcoholic beverages also available). The Beaumont Heritage Society believes that by promoting and sharing local history and its historical significance in a fun and social way, it can also share and promote the efforts to preserve Beaumont’s historical landscape.
