More Information

Designed in a modernist aesthetic, Herzlia-Adas Yeshurun Synagogue is a fusion of unembellished expanses of richly toned brick and large areas of glazing. Set back from the sidewalk and ensconced in garden space, the building is a demure presence in its suburban setting. Ribbon windows along the lower section of the Brock Street elevation lend a sense of modern lightness to the scheme.
