Agudath Israel Synagogue, Chicago

Agudath Israel, an Orthodox Jewish congregation, approached Sarfatty Associates to design a new 18,500 square foot synagogue on a prominent corner in Chicago's West Rogers Park neighborhood. The congregation's traditional outlook is reflected in the building's design, which adapts historic motifs and materials to a present-day context, while maintaining sensitivity to the requirements of Jewish law. Rusticated brick, dressed stone, traditional lighting fixtures, and hand carved wood reinforce this concept. Movable partitions allow for flexible use of spaces for prayer, study, and social interaction. The result is a timeless place of worship that combines sustainable materials and energy efficient technology.
