Starting with Selma our docent ..she is such a warm friendly intelligent creative person We have visited other Frank Lloyd wright structures but since we are Jewish, this Synagogue m eant the most to us. And, we are members of Temple Israel Albany NY and Cantor David Tillman retired Cantor of Beth Shalom is a graduate of Temple Israel. we were impressed in so many ways. Every little detail that Selma pointed out has significnce to coordinate with the overall design. It was so interesting that 2 hours went very quickly. WE also got to see all areas of the Syngagoue and s urroundings, very complete tour. Thank you for making tours available.

Very good tour given by docent who was quite knowledgeable and pointed out noteworthy arch. features. History and vision of Rabbi Cohen was a great example of the impact one man can have on the world.
