Congregation Beth Israel / Bellingham, Washington

Congregation Beth Israel is one of the oldest congregations in Western Washington. It has served the Jewish community of Bellingham and the surrounding Northwest region since established in 1908. The congregation purchased a 14 acre site along what will become a major arterial road connecting new
residential areas. Sustainable and Green design driven by regional and environmental concerns, along with traditional synagogue requirements, history and economics have had major influences on the design.
