Heritage and Craft at the Holy Blossom Temple Renewal

November 19, 2021

While celebrating the past and looking to its future, the Holy Blossom Renewal commemorates the story of its congregation through a contemporary architecture. It reveals the significance of history, juxtaposing it with a modern vision—one that celebrates community and continuity. Jewish identity is architecturally expressed throughout the new House of Gathering, with the integration of biblical plants, selection of materials, display of historical artifacts and texts, and etching of Hebrew bible passages in the upper atrium railings.

The video directed by Nicholas de Pencier captures this spirit as well as the elements of craft that were introduced in the project.
