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.

Nineteenth Street Synagogue

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

The 'Pineapple' Rimonim

These bells adorned a Torah scroll at the consecration ceremony of the First Mill Street Synagogue in 1730.
