Our Building & Sanctuary
The sanctuary of Congregation Emanuel is an icon of mid-century architecture. Our building was designed by noted architect Arthur Silver. "His extant works have typical characteristics of mid-century architecture but none like the striking blue decorative honeycomb screen that adorns the Kingston building. Colored glass is also incorporated into the windows behind the screen to create what looks like an intimate religious space". The congregation was built during the years of 1957-1958, and dedicated in 1959.
