Temple Beth El
PGAL designed the renovation and expansion of Temple Beth El, a synagogue rooted in tradition with a focus on meeting the future needs of the congregation and the broader Jewish community.
The project includes the addition of a 175- to 200-seat chapel, a learning center, a gift shop, an expanded entry and lobby with vaulted ceilings, a covered drop off, consolidated administrative offices, a clergy office, and education offices. The existing sanctuary was also renovated, adding a green room to serve the main sanctuary and new chapel, and creating additional storage.
Project phasing allowed the existing facility to remain operational at all times, supporting the congregation’s emphasis on maintaining a connection to prayer and worship.
