This was one happy congregation to have commissioned such a beautiful book in honor of their new synagogue which was dedicated December 14–30, 1956. It offers a visual tour of all the major rooms in the temple as well as celebrating the ten steps in The Life of a Jew, which were represented in specially created stained glass windows. The artwork is a time capsule of 1950s graphic design. Lovely.
