Architect: Jesse James Hamblin, A.A., Junior College of Connecticut. After graduation he became a distinguished architect and builder, with a practice based in Bridgeport. The Rodeph Shalom Synagogue and Talmud Torah are considered classic and historic synagogues of Connecticut. Constructed in 1947, and built of red brick and limestone trim, the structure combines a monumental classical entry façade with the flat ornamentation of Art Deco. Broad doors lead up to triple doorways separated by slender Doric columns and are flanked by rusticated piers. Neo-Classical and Art Deco styles are combined and are a good example of ‘eclectic merging', in this structure.
