 The frontispiece of The Synagogues of Dorchester is a picture of The Talmudist by Jacob Binder, a gift to the Museum of Fine Arts in 1929. It was painted in response to John Singer Sargent's mural Synagogue unveiled in 1919.

The sitter/model for the painting was a Jewish carpenter named Jacob Freeman.
