Park Synagogue East Receives Honor Award in Faith & Form’s 2007 Award Program
CENTERBROOK, Conn. -- Park Synagogue East was recognized by this national program, which honors design excellence and is co-sponsored by the American Institute of Architects and the Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art & Architecture.
The Faith & Form jury commented that "The building is rich in symbolism, while the detailing and finishes are wonderful. The aesthetic reverberates throughout the building. The use of natural lighting is wonderful. The porticos are a welcoming gesture, suggestive of a rabbi’s hands extended in blessing. This incredibly powerful symbol is echoed in the canopy over the bimah. Well crafted and elegant."
