Summary expansion
The Temple was the first Jewish sanctuary to make extensive use of paintings. The paintings, gift of Mr. and Mrs. Jack, Harry and Abe Warner in memory of Milton and Samuel Warner, consist of three lunettes located on the north, east, and west sides of the building. The Creation Lunette represents the days of Creation according to the Midrashic point of view; the Eastern Lunette represents the Prophets, Priests and Rabbis of Old; the Western Lunette depicts the Messianic Age or the reign of peace and good will upon earth. The murals were executed on canvas in the studio of Hugo Ballin, and then brought to the Temple and attached to the walls
