Building a new synagogue, purchasing a building or renovating an existing space is an inspiring, affirming, exciting and sometimes daunting process. The Union for Reform Judaism has developed a series of resources to guide congregations through the myriad of decisions that must be made during an architectural project. The resources combine information about organizational processes and building considerations with Jewish perspectives about sacred space and holy encounters. Visit the Sacred Space and Synagogue Architecture website and use the publications listed below to learn more.
