Sacred Space

Written by:

The vast majority of Conservative synagogues today are large, architecturally modernist suburban structures. Key innovations in Conservative synagogue design are the absence of an elevated section, or gallery for women, and the replacement of the traditional central bima (reader's stand) with an altar from which rabbis and cantors officiate.
