Congregation Beth Sholom Synagogue

San Francisco, CA

The Beth Sholom Synagogue in San Francisco has a rich cultural history. The congregation was unofficially founded when the great earthquake of 1906 forced many Russian Jewish immigrants to practice religion within the confines of a refugee camp. Over one hundred years later, Salter supported the acoustic design of the Jewish temple’s new building. The 632-seat sanctuary features rows of arch-like seating facing inward and placed opposite each other to promote a sense of community, with space for the service leaders in the middle. The temple has received numerous awards and accolades, including an AIA Merit Award for Architecture and Excellence in Architecture Honor Award.
