Thanks to Utah Style & Design magazine for offering readers a glimpse into the storied history of the B’Nai Israel Temple. As stewards of one of Utah’s most historic buildings, we’re thrilled when the spotlight shines on this architectural gem.

It first served as home to the state's oldest Jewish congregation and, later, to clusters of the city's homeless who set up camp inside its walls..." By Christie Marcy
