Beth Sholom Synagogue

Beth Sholom ("House of Peace"), a Conservative Jewish congregation, was founded in 1918 in honor of the end of World War I. Rabbi Mortimer J. Cohen commissioned great American architect Frank Lloyd Wright to design a synagogue in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, completed in 1959. After Wright's death, Beth Sholom was recognized by the American Institute of Architects and the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of Wright's seventeen most important projects. Beth Sholom Synagogue was listed as a National Historic Landmark in 2007.
