Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple

New Brunswick, NJ

This temple designed by architect Alexander Merchant, was built in 1930, in New Brunswick, NJ. It’s renovation began in 2005.

Working closely with the board of directors, EverGreene designers created a new decorative scheme for the temple that eliminated existing polychroming and better harmonized with present architectural elements, adding scale to the walls and dome interior. The final design included a warmer, more welcoming color palette, custom-made stencils and quoining along the side windows and central arches in the temple. Artists also fabricated ark doors comprised of a ¼” red oak face with a poplar stave core and cast bronze insert.
