B’Nai Israel History

Anderson, SC

ANDSynagogueLB’Nai Israel Synagogue was built in 1948. Max Siegel wanted his grandson to have his Bar Mitzvah in a “Synagogue”. Before that, services were held above a department store in downtown Anderson.

The congregation has been in Anderson for well over 100 years.
