Temple Beth Israel

IMG_2596 by lc_db

The Congregation Beth Israel is the oldest Jewish congregation in Texas, its origins dating back to 1844. This building, built in 1925 was their temple until they moved to a new site in southwest Houston. Located on the corner of Austin and Holman streets it now acts as a performance theater for the Houston Community College system.


  1. I look forward each day for your photo postings. As a native
    (almost) Houstonian it is a real treat to see what is next.

    Re: Congregation Beth Israel is actually at Austin & Holman.
    Next to two other Houston Landmarks: San Jacinto High School
    and First Evangelical German Lutheran Church. Thanks again
    for the great work.
