Restoration 150 Fund
The beautiful Temple of Israel has been a landmark in Wilmington for almost 147 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 now needs financial help as its almost 150 year old sanctuary requires urgent repair. We have nearly reached our initial goal but because of raising construction costs, we are continuing our fundraising efforts.
We are grateful for the generosity of our many donors who have participated thus far. Additional contributions to our campaign are greatly appreciated.
