History

Our Shul

From Wikipedia: Founded as Congregation Beth El of Borough Park in August 1902, it erected a brick building in 1906, at 12th Avenue and 41st Street. A three-story building that currently houses the organization was built between 1920 and 1923. The structure itself is often referred to as Temple Beth El. It has Moorish and Egyptian design influences. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010. Further detail on this listing is here.
