Beth Shalom Synagogue is the only synagogue designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The building was the idea of Rabbi Mortimer J. Cohen who outlined his vision for a synagogue that was simple and modern in design. Rabbi Cohen sent a letter to Wright and the rest is history.
Join Helene Mansheim, lead docent and visitor center manager at Beth Sholom Synagogue, for this interesting “tour.” She says, “it truly was a collaboration between Cohen and Wright.” Mansheim notes that when Wright sent the first set of plans for the synagogue in 1954, he gave Rabbi Cohen co-designer status.
