The beautiful Temple of Israel has been a landmark in Wilmington for almost 146 years. Built in 1876, the Moorish Revival style Temple is the oldest synagogue in continuous use in North Carolina and one of the oldest in the United States. This Temple is an architectural jewel.
The historic Temple needs financial help. It is the oldest Jewish house of worship in the state of North Carolina, and its almost 150-year old sanctuary requires urgent repair.
The Restoration 150 Fund plans to raise $500,000. The half million to be raised is today’s equivalent of the $20,000 it took to originally build the structure in 1875.
