About The Actors’ Temple

The Actors’ Temple was founded in 1917 as the West Side Hebrew Relief Association. Its leaders were Orthodox Jews who owned shops in the rough-and-tumble district called Hell’s Kitchen, at the time one of the world’s busiest steamship ports. The founders borrowed a Biblical nickname for God, Ezrath Israel, “the One who assists Israel,” as the name for their benevolent little Jewish community center. They provided a place where actors could be accepted and feel at home. The actors introduced their friends to the synagogue, and the rest, as they say, is history. http://www.theactorstemple.org/about-us
