Old Broadway Synagogue
The Old Broadway Synagogue, an Orthodox congregation on Old Broadway, half a block east of Broadway between 125th and 126th Streets, has held Sabbath and holiday services in the same location since 1923.
Under the leadership of the late Rabbi Jacob Kret, who served as Old Broadway's spiritual leader from 1950 to 1997, the synagogue attracted Holocaust survivors who settled in the area and, later, students from Columbia, Barnard and the Jewish Theological Seminary. Most recently, Old Broadway has been attended by some of the small but growing number of Jews who now live in Harlem.
As the last and only (perhaps for now) functioning mainstream synagogue in Harlem, the Old Broadway Synagogue has been placed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
