LA&M's New Doorway into Our Past

LA&M is located inside a historic former synagogue built in the mid-1950's. It's a spectacular building, but is showing its age here and there, and the front doors have reached the end of their usefulness. We will get new doors....not just new, but doors that make a stunning statement about our pride in the history found here. The 9-foot etched glass doorway will convey the significance of entering this building to discover a treasure trove of history and culture that is often forgotten, and you can help make this a reality!

Everyone who gives at the $150 level and higher will become an inaugural member of the Friends of LA&M group, created by Peter Fiske and Jim Neuman. You will receive an LA&M friendship pin, and several small "thank you" gifts.

Give at the $250 level and higher and you will be entered into a raffle to win one of several amazing prizes, including fetish artwork, Bad Dragon toys, gift cards and more!
