RODE designed the new synagogue for a long-standing Jewish Congregation in Brighton. The building assumes a simple form: two rectilinear volumes front onto Washington Street, the larger masonry-clad volume houses significant program elements - sanctuary, social hall, and classrooms - while a second volume holds the service elements. The masonry volume is punctured at significant moments by wood-textured planar walls, opening light and views for the spaces contained within.
