Open House New York invites you to a special Members Open House at Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, one of the country’s oldest and most influential lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender faith-based groups. Located in the base of a landmarked 1929 Cass Gilbert building, the new synagogue is the congregation's first permanent home. Designed by Architecture Research Office (ARO), the space is a reflection of the congregation's values of transparency, intimacy and warmth. The synagogue includes a 299-seat sanctuary where no seat is more than 35 feet from the pulpit, a chapel that also serves as the congregation’s library, a shared restroom that required a special variance from the city to be built, classrooms, and a community room.

The evening will begin with a presentation by ARO principal Stephen Cassell, AIA LEED AP. The presentation will be followed by a reception with light refreshments and the opportunity to explore the synagogue.
