Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim Reform Temple

From our beginnings in 1749, Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim (KKBE) has been at the spiritual heart of Jewish Charleston. Our present synagogue, built in 1840, is considered one of country's finest examples of Greek Revival architecture. It is the second oldest synagogue in the country, oldest in continuous use, oldest surviving Reform synagogue in the world and a National Historical Landmark of the US Birthplace of American Reform Judaism in 1824.
