Dedicated in 1929, the Wilshire Boulevard Temple is the oldest synagogue in the Los Angeles area. The temple is a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The structure suffered from water infiltration and exhibited damage to the exterior facade and interior finishes. In 2000, the temple was awarded a Preserve L.A. grant from The Getty Foundation. Working for Levin & Associates Architects, SGH performed a condition assessment of temple and helped identify components in need of repair and rehabilitation.
