During the 1920s, '30s and '40s, when Boyle Heights in East Los Angeles had the largest Jewish community in the Western United States, the Breed Street Shul was known as the "Queen of the Shuls," because it was so grand. Eventually, as the Jewish population left "The Heights," the Breed Street Shul fell into disrepair and was threatened with demolition. Ellie Kahn's film depicts the life and the new beginnings of the Breed Street Shul. As in Kahn's award winning film, "Meet Me at Brooklyn & Soto," (about the Jewish Community in East L.A. and produced with the Jewish Historical Society) history is captured through the unique, colorful and fascinating stories and memories of former residents who lived and celebrate that history.
