Temple Emanu-El

New York, NY

EverGreene was selected as the prime contractor for the two-year phased restoration of historic interior finishes at Temple Emanu-El. Built in 1929 as the largest synagogue in the world, Temple Emanu-El is the home of Reformed Judaism and a prominent landmark on Fifth Avenue. The architecture combines Byzantine and early Romanesque styles with Moorish-style decoration. EverGreene’s scope of work included restoration of decorative and commercial painting, plasterwork, stone, mosaics, and ornamental metal in the sanctuary, chapel, and lobby.
