About the project

The Marjorie & Archie Sherman Synagogues is a complex of three religious structures:an Ashkenazi synagogue, a Sephardi synagogue and a ritual bath, all built into a hill at the northernmost edge of the East Talpiot neighborhood. The buildings were designed by architect Haim Hafetz using his “domecrete” patent, in which concrete is cast over a balloon mold, creating interior spaces in which walls flow into ceiling, creating a feeling of unity and closeness.The synagogues replaced temporary buildings and were the first permanent synagogues built in the East Talpiot neighborhood.
