TEMPLE COVID POLICY UPDATE

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 of Israel, at 4th and Market in Wilmington, North Carolina, the oldest congregation in continuous use in the State of North Carolina needs your help. Its almost 150-year-old sanctuary is in need of repair, beyond what our small congregation can afford. It has been closed since March, 2020.
We are grateful for the generosity of our many donors who have participated thus far. Additional contributions to our campaign are greatly appreciated.
