Hevreh of Southern Berkshire
Great Barrington, MA
The design of this new building is an expression of this “hevreh” (community). After 20 years of “wandering,” the congregation felt that the time had come for a permanent home. The challenge was to build a temple that draws worshippers closer together, that invites spiritual reflection, and encourages the community aspirations of the congregation. It also needed to provide space for the growing educational program and community events.
