  • Mss 288, Esther Levine Papers

    The 1950s marked a time of considerable growth for Shearith Israel. The arrival of Rabbi Kassel Abelson in 1952 coincided with the congregation’s move to a larger and more modern building. At this time, the congregation also became affiliated with United Synagogue of America and became active in the Conservative movement. As a result, Shearith Israel’s United Synagogue Youth (USY) chapter became extremely active within the congregation and the entire southeast region.  Shearith Israel was always proud of its young people and always active in USY– United Synagogue Youth.
