During segregation, Baltimore’s Ashburton and Forest Park neighborhoods were home to Black and Jewish families. But by the sixties, Jewish residents had begun to move to the suburbs.

This history--and its recounting in the book Not In My Neighborhood by Antero Pietilla--is what brought together Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg of Beth Tfiloh Congregation and Rev. Terris A. King of Liberty Grace Church of God. Now, they are passing it on through Temple X, an augmented reality app developed by King’s son.
