Long Description:
This synagogue employs the same architectural themes seen in the larger Protestant chapel above, including the use of stained glass and natural hardwoods. As one walks into the worship area, they walk on 1631 Jerusalem stones given to the cadets by Israeli Defense Forces in 1960.
In the foyer of the chapel is a display cabinet with a Torah Scroll that was saved from the Nazis during World War II. It was found in Poland in 1989 in an abandoned warehouse and donated to the Jewish Chapel in April 1990. This "Holocaust Torah" is dedicated to the memory of all of those who fought against the Nazis.
Status: Active house of prayer
