Beth Sholom Temple, 1765 Broadway NE, (D)

Established in the 1930's, the first meetings of Beth Sholom Temple were in private homes, then downtown. The synagogue was built 1948. After five decades, the congregation was too large for this home. As preparations were made for renovation, another option appeared. Our Savior's Lutheran Church in South Salem was moving and this property was purchased. On September 17, 2006, the members, with the support of the Salem community, marched the Torahs 5.2 miles to their new home.
