Temple Covenant of Peace, Easton, PA

This Modern synagogue was submitted by reader Michael H. (shoutout to the Society of Commercial Archaeology!). Dating from 1959, Temple Covenant of Peace was formerly located in one of the oldest synagogues in the country, dating to 1842. However this structure, most recently a church, burned down in 2003. The architect was Daniel Schwartzman of New York City and the interior had Judaica by noted artist Ludwig Wolpert, although it is unclear if these items remain.

  1. Just to let you know that his MCM former synagogue still stands. Temple Covenant of Peace and Bnai Abraham Synagogue in Easton merged in 2019? and they consolidated in Bnai Abraham’s building. I have photos of the bldg with the exterior artwork plus the sanctuary interior. I also have a photo of their late 19th c synagogue that burned c 2003. Let me know if you want any of the pics.
