PARK SYNAGOGUE

As the Anshe Emeth congregation relocates, the story of Mendelsohn's synagogue calls for a new chapter.

We begin this redevelopment with the belief that its future should not be decided by one voice or group, but rather through a planning process that draws out the best ideas and establishes a developable plan that is in sympathy with its original principles: family, education, and community.

Over the coming months, we will begin a master plan that seeks these best ideas across a variety of sectors—including the arts, performance, housing, social services, environmental sustainability, and education.

It will be essential to build a diverse coalition to steward and invigorate the reimagined building. If your organization or group has a vision for what might be, please use the form below to get in touch or read more about the project here.

PRESERVATION, RESTORATION, AND REUSE

"I regard Park Synagogue as the most significant structure of its kind in our generation."
