The soon-to-be-demolished former Anshe Kenesseth Israel (Aroner & Somers, 1913) at Homan & Douglas in North Lawndale. After the neighborhood transitioned from Jewish to Black, this building hosted Friendship Baptist Church (where Dr. King spoke) and then Shepherd's Temple Baptist Church prior to being shuttered in the late 1990s.
