Young Israel Synagogue

Overview

The sanctuary contains one hundred and twenty insulated window panels printed in a custom color. The Fired Ceramic Frit pattern helps filter the light entering the sanctuary as well as creates the feel of a more intimate enclosure. Prismalite elements were incorporated to elevate the quality of light by casting prismatic colors into the worship space.
