In the Spirit of Our Age: Eric Mendelsohn's B'nai Amoona Synagogue

In the Spirit of Our Age celebrates the B'nai Amoona Synagogue, a local landmark and the first U.S. commission of renowned architect Eric Mendelsohn. Kathleen James-Chakraborty places the building, which currently houses the Center of Contemporary Arts, in its significant and proper context in modern religious architecture, while illustrations from the Mendelsohn archives in Berlin include original sketches and contemporary photographs of the building.
