Temple Beth Shalom

Temple Beth Shalom of Napa Valley

A reconstruction of this Napa synagogue stalled in the very early stages of construction, and Paul Kelley was brought in to bring the building to fruition. Due to extenuating factors, most of the construction documents had to be redrawn and reconfigured to fit the existing site conditions. Kelley helped re-envision the building’s front elevation, lobby, sanctuary, commercial kitchen, social hall and other aspects of the synagogue. Expertly navigating a sensitive situation, Kelley brought contractors, congregants, building officials and other stakeholders together to bring this valuable community resource and house of prayer to life, much to the happiness and relief of all involved parties.
