July 23, 1820, the first in any
American synagogue. As
might be expected, the more
traditional members began to
break away. In 1860 they
formed B'nai B'rith Jacob, an
Orthodox congregation,
which today is the largest of
Savannah's three synagogues.
Agudath
Conservative
Achim, the oldest congrega-
tion in Georgia affiliated with
United Synagogue of
America, was founded in
1903 by members who had
broken off trom B'nai B'rith
Jacob. Having outgrown
earlier buildings, both con-
gregations have constructed
architecturally modern
synagogues in a residential
neighborhood about seven
miles south of the downtown
historic district. A car or taxi
ride is required to reach
them.
B'nai B'rith Jacob, a buff-
colored brick structure at
5444 Abercorn Street, was
completed in time for
Passover services in 1962. A
hand-painted muralon its
Eastern wall depicts biblical
themes and traditions of the
Jewish people. Students of the
Old Testament regularly visit
to view the mural and attend
lectures in which its mean-
ings are explained. The holy
ark, in a 20-foot-high alcove,
is topped with a round
stained-glass window featur-
ing a Star of David in its
center.
The sanctuary of Agudath
Achim symbolizes Noah's
Ark, with sweeping wooden
walls that suggest a ship's
hull reaching a peak the
height of a four-story
building. A skylight above the
bimah and elongated stained-
glass windows representing
Jacob's dream and Jacob's
wrestling add to the drama of
Savannah's newest
synagogue, completed in 1972
and located on Lee Bouldvard
off Abercorn Street.
The Jews of Savannah
throughout history have
taken an active part in civic
life and have fought heroical-
ly in the wars involving the
city and the entire nation.
Markers in the historic
district point out the homes of
leading Jewish citizens.
Although there are no
kosher restaurants in Savan-
nah, one can find frozen and
packaged kosher foods as well
as kosher wines in local
stores. Fish is plentiful in this
port city, and a kosher caterer,
Alan Gottlieb, prepares meals
for local Jewish families'
events and orders meat for
observant families. In the
small community — approx-
imately 2,600 Jewish families
— congregants recognize
strangers at Sabbath services
