Temple Emanu-El Synogogue
Construction on the Temple started in 1927 and was completed two years later. It is the largest synagogue in the world, measuring 100 feet wide, 175 feet long, and 103 feet high. This was an early example of architectural steel frame enabling the 103 foot height without supporting pillars. The architectural firm of Kohn, Butler & Stein led the team that also included the firms of Goodhue Associates and Mayers, Murray & Phillip as consultants.
