"Temple Beth Israel" Portland Off The Beaten Path Tip by xeberus

Portland Off The Beaten Path: 132 reviews and 304 photos

  The Synagogue
by xeberus

The original Beth Israel was destroyed in a fire in 1923. The current synagogue was built between 1926 and 1928 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It's also a beautiful building and is one of the masterpieces of Herman Brookman.

Check and see if the door is unlocked for a peak inside. The octagonal brick domed building is hard to miss. It's located at 1931 NW Flanders by Couch Park.
