Prominent features include an intricately patterned ceramic tile floor, copper dome, cast concrete column capitals and cast bronze emblems depicting the original twelve tribes. Stained-glass windows depicting the Star of David project a range of colors against the concrete interior dome. The hexagonal design and its dome were heralded by reviewers as a beautiful expression of the unity of the Jewish community. The Kagan-Rudy Chapel received a national design award. Jurors commented the building was a "poetic use of concrete."
