Casual Friday: Temple Emanuel

Photo by Tisa Wenger
This is Temple Emanuel in Denver, where the Western History Association meeting was held last weekend. According to the Temple Events Center website:
The Temple Emanuel Building, a Moorish style synagogue, was built in 1899 by architect John Humphreys. It is a local and national historic landmark. The Events Center features 100-foot towers with copper domes, stained glass windows, intricate woodwork, vaulted ceilings, gold leaf stenciling, and velvet-covered seats. A 1911 Estey pipe organ, the oldest in the country, is located in the choir loft.
These days, a "multidenominational community" called Pathways Church meets there. It is certainly a beautiful building, and thanks to Tisa Wenger for the photo. Watch this space for a recap of the WHA meeting, coming on Monday!
