Congregation Zemach David Synagogue

This ground-up project for a new 4-story synagogue for Congregation Zemach David in New Square, an all-Hasidic village in the town of Ramapo, New York, is currently under construction with Mc Gowan serving as construction manager.

At the time of completion, the New Square Synagogue will be the largest synagogue in America and second largest is the world. The main sanctuary will be over 37,000 square feet with over 4,000 seats.

The exterior design features Jerusalem limestone cladding with bronze panels, bronze-finished doors and windows. A gut renovation of an existing building, and connection to a third, creating a sacred complex of immense scale. As of now, the steel is rising high, already the tallest building in the village, and will cap out at over 60 feet tall on four above-ground levels.

The proposed project involves development of a 70,000 square foot addition to the Tish Building with a large column free space, interior balconies and a full cellar throughout the building.
