Above: Rosh Hoshanah detail from sanctuary of Beth Emeth, Albany, New York. The windows combine representational and symbolic portions of the windows from the congregation's previous home in downtown Albany (artist unknown) with abstract glass created by Robert Sowers for the new building designed by Percival Goodman and completed in 1957.
