Brith Emeth Temple Plan, 1966

Edward Durell Stone, an internationally known midcentury modern architect, designed Brith Emeth Temple in Pepper Pike. The temple's circular portico wraps around a series of concave exterior walls that create six points reminiscent of the Star of David. Builders erected an umbrella-like mast and trusses that supported the temple's conical dome until it was completed. The original plan included a fountain pool in the driveway in the front of the entrance, as this plan shows. Two decades after its construction, the temple became home to Park Synagogue East from 1986 to 2006.
