CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - Old Town Cape revealed its 2022 Christmas ornament.

According to its Facebook page, the ornament will feature “B’Nai Israel Synagogue.”

When discussing this year’s choice, Old Town Cape’s assistant director, Andrea Hamm, said in a release, “We are thrilled how beautiful this year’s ornament turned out.
