Congregation Beth Shalom

Congregation Beth Shalom was built in two phases during the 1950's.

The congregation has made major interior and exterior capital improvements including in part:

  • The transformation of a dark uninviting open rear court into a light-filled two story gathering place;
  • The conversion of an underutilized auditorium to classrooms;
  • Renovation of the sanctuary and social hall: finishes, lighting, seating and sound system;
  • Making the entire building fully accessible;
  • Totally new energy efficient electrical and mechanical systems;
  • Complete landscaping including the creation of a new entry garden;
  • Expansion and complete redesign of the chapel;
  • Refurbishment of all interior spaces;
  • New gift shop;
  • New furniture and furnishings.

These enhancements have been accomplished without impairing the distinctive spatial charter and quality of the major existing interior spaces — the sanctuary and the social hall.
