Beth-El Chapel

Select image for larger view

Beth-El Chapel bears the name of Congregation Beth-El, which merged with Congregation Emanu-El in 1927. The Romanesque room seats nearly three hundred people, its acoustic enhanced by its pair of domes and the mosaic-clad Bima apse, which features Louis Comfort Tiffany’s only depiction of a synagogue in stained glass.



The III-manual 35-rank electropneumatic instrument, with infrastructure for future additions, replaces a II-manual 15-rank organ that had been reconfigured several times. The Swell 8’ Bourdon en Bois and 2’ Octavin, as well as the Great 4’ Octave, are revoiced from the Clarence Dickinson-designed Möller originally in Temple Beth-El. The entire organ speaks from the West gallery on a wind pressure of four inches.
