Siry on Frank Lloyd Wright’s Only Synagogue

In an interview with the Tel Aviv newspaper, Haaretz, Professor of Art History Joseph Siry discusses his new book on Beth Sholom Synagogue, the only temple by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Siry describes the synagogue, located outside Philadelphia, as the climax of Wright’s lifelong work designing modern religious architecture. “Wright was conscious of the fact that he was nearing the end of his life, and it was vital to him to bring to fruition architectural ideas he considered essential,” Siry tells Haaretz. Siry and his book were also featured in a recent story in The Wesleyan Connection.
