Bounded by the same block on either side of the Hudson Valley Community Center sit two mid-century synagogues.
Temple Beth-El is a conservative congregation along S. Grand Avenue. The complex sits back from the street behind a parking lot and winding drive to a flat-roofed porte-cochere at the entrance. The structure is faced in red brick with a decorative window and panels fronting the sanctuary toward the street.
Schrome Israel sits close the street on Park Avenue. It is an Orthodox congregation that has had many homes; this one dates from 1968 and is of a severe design. The most prominent feature is an undulating wall of bright blue brick alongside Park Avenue topped by a flat projecting roofline supported by square pillars in dark brick. The rest of the structure seems fairly utilitarian but this pop of color brings visual interest to the modest building.
