Temple of Israel
Constructed in 1876, Temple of Israel is the oldest synagogue in North Carolina. The congregation still uses the building for religious services but its main offices and religious school are located at 922 Market Street. The congregation has followed the Reform tradition since its inception. The structure itself, which was designed in the Greek Revival and Moorish styles, features several interesting architectural elements such as horseshoe arches and two towers capped by small domes. The congregation today is vibrant and diverse.
