  • Detail
  • Windows in context (seen behind pulpit)
  • Westlake's stained glass is one of the later features of this highly decorated synagogue. The series of 40 side windows not only adds "further interest" ("New West End Synagogue"), but introduces a touch of nature, particularly refreshing in the synagogue's busy urban context.
