Congregation B'nai Israel

Sylvania, Ohio


The spaces in the temple did not accommodate the various programming needs and its energy deficient operational costs were bankrupting the congregation. As Architect of Record, Hobbs+Black provided a more efficient synagogue that offers flexible space for the various needs of the congregation. The 19,700-square-foot temple includes a new sanctuary which can seat 200-600 people, classrooms, boardroom and office space, a chapel, and a multi-purpose social hall complete with kosher kitchen.
