Beit Shmuel Cultural Center

Jerusalem

The Beit Shmuel Cultural Center is a building for hospitality and gathering that was built adjacent to the Hebrew Union College building and designed by SAFDIE Architects.

The 7,000 square meter site borders the Mamila site and views the walls of the Old City and the Jaffa Gate.

The building is used by the Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism, and consists of guest rooms, classrooms, a cafeteria and offices.

The building's walls and ceilings were made from concrete and clad in stone. At the top of the building there is an open assembly hall that overlooks the Old City. It is constructed of a system of concrete arches connected to a cone made of glass and steel.
