From the outside appearance of the building itself, which is fashioned to look like a Torah Scroll unfurling from right to left to the very pattern of our walkway in the form of an olive branch, each and every element was created to reflect the philosophy of our congregation.
In the forefront of Reform Judaism’s future, Temple Shir Shalom has grown from 30 founding families in 1988 to over 900 families today. We have worked hard to create a synagogue, which could radiate warmth and respond to the individual needs of our congregants. Architects Ken Neumann and Joel Smith translated both the mission of our congregation and Rabbi Dannel Schwartz’s vision into brick and mortar while providing the traditional three-fold purpose of the synagogue: a house of study, a house of prayer and a house of meeting designed for people who wish to share a warmth of heart and spirit.
