Biographical/Historical Note:  Jack Steinberg Papers consist of information he collected on Adas Yeshurun, the Congregation Children of Israel Sisterhood and the Augustan community.  This collection does not contain any personal or family history on the Steinberg family. Adas Yeshurun Synagogue is affiliated with the Conservative movement. It was founded in 1891 and has functioned for over 100 years as an Orthodox synagogue. By 1845 the Jewish community in the Central Savannah River Area had expanded to approximately 20 people who felt the need to form a religious school. This was the core of what became Congregation B'nai Israel, The Children of Israel in 1846. On February 11, 1942 the Sisterhood commemorated its Golden Jubilee with a black tie affair at the Bon Air Hotel. The Temple Brotherhood was born in the 1920's.  Congregation Children of Israel held its 100th anniversary in 1945.  A building fund was started in 1946 and a site was selected at the corner of Bransford Road and Walton Way.   The new building was dedicated on November 16, 1951.  By 1964 the congregation experienced growing pains again, so members voted to erect a new sanctuary, social hall, and kitchen at the Walton Way location. This building was dedicated on March 17th, 1967, to honor Rabbi Goldburg's 90th birthday. Of special interest are two bibles, pre 1900 which belong to the Sheftall and Nathan Families.  Thomas Sheftall married Irene E. Nathans in Philadelphia on February 13, 1881.  The first bible, belonging to the Thomas Sheftall family, is a revised version of A.D. 1881.  The second bible contains a family record of births, deaths and marriages.

Scope and Content:  Researchers studying the Jack Steinberg Papers will gain insight into Jewish life in Augusta, Georgia. The papers are arranged in alphabetical order according to subject, and chronologically within each folder.
