Entrance of Beth Olam Cemetery


Shearith Israel's cemeteries are critical to the preservation and transmission of our congregational story.  Three historic and one active cemetery are maintained by the congregation and each has a tale to tell.

Nineteenth Street Synagogue

The congregation's fourth synagogue was built on nineteenth Street, just west of Fifth Avenue.  


Synagogue tradition associates this Hanukkah lamp with the First Mill Street Synagogue of 1730.
