On an overcast, cold December morning, a group of congregation members of Oseh Shalom synagogue gathered to watch the first pieces of the temple’s sanctuary be removed as part of a replacement of its iconic translucent dome.

The original dome has outlived its useful life and will be replaced by a new dome made in the same configuration and of the same material, said Barry Nove, facility manager at Oseh Shalom. The removal began Tuesday, Dec. 17, after several delays because of wintry weather.
