Clck here to review the document package submitted by the Congregation at this hearing.

We have posted scans of the drawings submitted by the Congregation to the LPC for its March 14, 2006 meeting. These were not provided to the public until a week after the meeting was held. We have also edited some of the drawings to remedy some of the confusion intentionally introduced by the Synagogue so as to conceal the impact of the building.
