Bowdoin Completes Synagogue Renovations

Exterior of Temple Beth Avodah’s new chapel addition

Newton, MA – As part of Temple Beth Avodah’s “Vision Campaign,” Bowdoin Construction worked with Bechtel Frank Erickson Architects to renovate its Newton sanctuary, lobby, and common areas, and build a new 1,200sf addition to the rear of the existing building.

The addition consists of a new chapel for ceremonies and space for social gatherings, musical performances, lectures and classes for the Temple’s growing congregation. The Torah Ark, situated within an alcove of floor to

ceiling windows, is a dramatic feature in the chapel. New landscaping was installed to complete the project.
