Augusta, GA, June 10, 2020 - Historic Augusta and the Augusta Jewish Museum Board will hold a joint press conference Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at 3:00 P.M. at the Court of Ordinary on Telfair Street adjacent to the Augusta Municipal Building (535 Telfair Street).

The 3 P.M. press conference will also be streamed on Historic Augusta's Facebook page via Facebook Live.

Plans will be unveiled to convert the former Court of Ordinary Building for use as a museum

adjacent Temple, the oldest standing synagogue in Georgia (Phase II).

The Augusta Jewish Museum Board, chaired by Jack Weinstein, has engaged Studio 3 Design Group with Ellen Neal Pruitt as architect for construction. Duckworth Development is the general contractor. The museum should be open by December 2020.
