Founded 1845; first Reform congregation in New York City; consolidated with Temple Beth-El in 1927; present structure completed in 1929 and dedicated in 1930; largest Jewish house of worship in the world; Goldsmith Religious School Building dedicated in 1963



The Temple's original Casavant organ of 109 ranks was dedicated 22 November 1929 by Marcel Dupré. Altered mid-century, nearly half of the organ's pipework was lost and pressures lowered. The instrument suffered subsequent steam and water damage, and the loss of its original console. At the recommendation of the Music Committee, the Trustees contracted Glück for a monumental symphonic all-pipe organ of 135 ranks. Incorporating the restored infrastructure and the remaining historic pipework, the instrument was completed for the High Holy Days 5763 (2002).
