After their original shul burned down, Congregation Agudas Shalom contracted with architect Harry Dustin Joll, in 1909 to rebuild. The magnificent structure was sometimes called the “Queen of Synagogues” and is believed to have been the largest shul in New England at the time. The ground floor of the shul contains a kitchen and two battei medrash, a smaller one that was used for daily davening and a larger one, where Shabbos services usually took place. The men’s section of the main shul is one flight up. The aron of the main shul stands 37.5 feet high and is made of solid oak with carvings of animals and symbols from the Torah. The women’s gallery is located on the third floor, with a seating capacity nearly equal to that of the men’s section downstairs. Together, the men’s and ladies’ sections on the second and third floors can seat 1109 people.
