      'Hidden in the Walls: The Time Capsule from San Francisco's Lost Sanctuary'
      Through Feb. 16, 2003, Magnes Museum

      ON A RECENT walk by the San Francisco synagogue he attended as a child, 90-year-old Jerome Haas Bayer was inspired to write down a few anecdotes. It wasn't that there was anything particularly remarkable about the building or about growing up as part of the Congregation Ohabai Shalome. Rather, his stories had more to do with the universality of his early experiences \endash learning about religion, discovering mentors and friends, and recognizing the incredible importance of community. Bayer's stories are part of a new exhibition at the Magnes Museum devoted to the discovery of a time capsule in the cornerstone of his former synagogue. Viewed through the lens of the 19th-century time capsule \endash always a strange but effective kind of autobiography \endash the Congregation Ohabai Shalome offers all kinds of fascinating insights into the history of Judaism in the West and life in young San Francisco. Recovered a little more than a year ago, the capsule contained eight newspapers , a number of coins , pamphlets containing constitutions and bylaws for various Jewish organizations, and even a few charmingly antique business cards from members of the congregation, including one for a plumber and another for a dairyman.

      1935-1936 Voters Lists at 1481 Haight :
      Haas Miss Ida L., housekeeper
      Haas Ludwig merchant
      1938--Ludwig, doorkeeper and Mrs. Bertha Haas, housewife
      1940--Ludwig, Bertha, Ida

      from Leo Baeck Institute:
      Jerome Haas Bayer was born on December 8, 1897 in San Francisco, CA to Joseph Bayer and Augusta Schlesinger. His father was a physician, who had received his medical training in Vienna. His mother was born in Birmingham, England, whose parents owned a wine business in San Francisco.
      Jerome Bayer received a law degree from UC Berkeley, where he also began performing in one-man theater shows. After graduation, Bayer practiced law in San Francisco for eleven years. In 1931, he went to Europe for two years and spent most of the time in Paris. After Hitler's rise to power in 1933, he returned to the US and spent the majority of his time writing, teaching and working in theater. During World War II, Bayer was the theater consultant for the United Service Organizations in Bremerton, WA, where he organized the Bremerton Theater Project. After the war, he returned to New York, where he concentrated on theater work, writing, and teaching. During the summers, he taught creative drama at Camp Robinson Crusoe. From 1953 to 1959, Bayer was the director of the drama department at the Jewish Community Center in Baltimore, MD. From 1959 to 1969, he held the same position at the JCC Detroit. In 1962, he became the cultural specialist at the Educational Alliance in New York. In this position, he lectured on a variety of topics and designed and organized many original programs. He spent much of his spare time writing. He held this position until 1991, and passed away on July 3, 1992.
