1900, there were forty Jewish
families in Plymouth, mostly
Eastern European im-
migrants who came to
Plymouth to work in the
area's mills.
A history of the congrega-
tion relates how these early
Jewish settlers first worship-
ped in private homes and
hired a hall High Holy days.
But in time they began to
plan to build their own
synagogue.
By 1910, they had bought a
property and obtained a mort-
gage. And in 1912, the whole
community joined in the
celebration when the cor-
nerstone was laid. A year
later, they all stood out in the
street and awaited the arrival
of two horse-drawn carriages,
from which two of their
members alighted, each
carefully carrying a Torah
scroll. Their synagogue was
finally ready to be
consecrated.
The synagogue today
doesn't look much different
from when it was first
dedicated. It's a simple sanc-
tuary with wooden pews and
colored glass windows and a
large but plain brass
chandelier.
The congregation which
began with forty families now
numbers 119. "It's doubled in
the last fifteen years," says
Steve Silverman, president.
The recent growth of
Plymouth and other South
Shore communities, he ex-
plains, has brought an in-
crease in the Jewish popula-
tion as well.
Though they're still a tiny
minority in this town of
41,000, Jewish residents are
active in many aspects of life
in Plymouth: in business, the
professions and politics:
Bruce Arens, one of the town's
five selectmen, is a member of
Beth Jacob.
The congregation, which
began as Orthodox but is now
Reform, now has a communi-
ty center building as well as
its original synagogue. In
1979, members purchased the
United Methodist Church
three blocks from the
synagogue and converted it
into their community center,
with classrooms, a large
social hall and a kosher
kitchen.
Shortly after, the congrega-
tion also acquired its own
burial ground. Before this,
members had to travel to
other cities to bury their
dead. But Rabbi Silverman
brought earth from Israel for
the consecration of Beth
Jacob Cemetery, located right
in Plymouth.
With all its expansion and
changes, this is a congrega-
tion which takes pride.
