Site of Jackson's Pioneer Jewish Synagogue
California State Historic Landmark 865
#865 Site of Jackson's Pioneer Jewish Synagogue
On September 18, 1857, Congregation B'nai Israel of Jackson dedicated on this site the first synagogue in the Mother Lode. High Holiday worship continued until 1869 when the larger Masonic hall was used to accommodate the congregation. The wooden structure then served as a schoolhouse until 1888. Relocated onto a nearby lot, it became a private dwelling, and was razed in 1948.
Nothing remains of this site.
SE corner of Church and Main Sts, Jackson.
Return to other landmarks in Amador county.
Please note: I have no connection to any organizations mentioned on this site.
