When it's finished, Rabbi Steven Leder hopes to reach beyond his Jewish congregation to people of other ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The synagogue, constructed in 1929 under the direction of Edgar Magnin, known as the Rabbi to the Stars, is full of scaffolding from the floor to the 100-foot high dome.
