Built by Rabbi Samuel Rosinger, Temple Emanu El is Beaumont's most notable work of religious architecture from the 1920s. Designed by Gottlieb, a New York City architect, it is an elongated octagon in plan, framed by stepped end bays, one containing the entrance doors and a limestone frontispiece whose profile evokes the Tablets of the Law. Capping the octagonal worship space is Gottlieb's low, bulbous copper dome.
