Synagogue Buildings

Over the centuries Congregation Shearith Israel has been housed in five different synagogue buildings and has established at least four cemeteries.  As the population of New York grew and moved uptown, so did Shearith Israel, always establishing new places of worship and resting places for loved ones.
