Rhinebeck Jewish Center is getting a cheerful new green home that will be upcycled from a historic barn. Designed by Yeshaya Shor, the new synagogue will recycle wood salvaged from an existing barn, giving it new life in a community center. Coupled with green technology such as rainwater collection and passive heating and cooling, the new building will be a welcoming and green place of prayer.
