Arizona Preservation: Students' film tells Phoenix synagogue's history

Raul Bencomo has lived in central Phoenix all his 13 years and until working on a historical documentary he never knew a building on Culver St. was the Valley's first synagogue. "I thought it was an old abandoned house, until I got involved," Bencomo said. He was among 10 eighth-graders from Kenilworth Elementary School in Phoenix who spent the last three months making a documentary about the Culver St. Synagogue that has housed three denominations since 1922.
