Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim Reform Temple

The first Jews began to settle in Charleston soon after 1670, attracted by the civil and religious freedom of South Carolina and its economic opportunities. A large and handsome synagogue built in 1794 was destroyed by fire in 1838. The 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.
