Overview

Established in 1845 as the primary Reform gathering place in New York, this sanctuary finished in 1929, is presently one of the biggest Jewish places of love on the planet. A monumental Romanesque structure, it is more than 175ft long and 100ft tall, with a splendid, hand-painted roof highlighting gold subtleties. It is ideal to call ahead before visiting in light of the fact that the gathering place normally closes for burial services and different occasions. Administrations (6 pm Fridays and 10:30 am Saturdays) are available to all.

The structure likewise flaunts 60 recolored glass windows and a monstrous rose window whose dozen boards speak to the 12 clans of Israel. Other recolored glass components pay recognition for remarkable places of worship, remembering the Altneuschul for Prague (the most established ceaselessly utilized Jewish place of love on the planet). The ark containing the Torah looks, on the eastern divider, is encircled by a sparkling glass-and-marble mosaic curve.

The sanctuary is home to the little Herbert and Eileen Bernard Museum of Judaica (open 10 am to 4 pm Sunday to Thursday), with in excess of 650 pieces that go back to the fourteenth century.
