You have turned my lament into dancing for me; You loosened my sackcloth and girded me with joy. So that my soul will sing praises to You and not be silent. O Lord, my God, I will thank You forever. —Psalm 30 IV, A Song for the dedication of the Temple
EverGreene has been honored to participate in the historic preservation and restoration of America’s most significant synagogues and temples from coast to coast.
Growing out of the prohibition of graven images, Judaism has developed a rich tradition of patterning over the centuries. The walls and ceilings of a synagogue hold the history of its people.
Encyclopedic knowledge of materials, styles, and techniques enable EverGreene’s conservation and restoration specialists to develop appropriate treatments. We use compatible materials, and are guided by the specific conditions of each synagogue we work with. Understanding a building’s past, the traditions of the community it houses, and how it will function in the future, are essential for good stewardship. These are areas in which EverGreene can be particularly helpful.
