Our turn-of-the-century synagogue is located in Prospect Park South, a landmark district of victorian homes listed in the National register of Historical Places. The original congregation (Temple Beth Emeth) was established in 1911 by Hannah Hirsch and 35 families concerned with educating children in reform Judaism.
