Summary

Significance: The Woodbine Brotherhood Synagogue was built by the Woodbine Brotherhood as the religious, cultural, and educational center of a colony of East European Jewish immigrants. Constructed entirely by the colonists on an American design, the Synagogue is symbolic of several basic characteristics of Woodbine. It is a response to the need for a place to practice a religion central to the life of the community. It expresses a cultural continuity in a new land, while also fusing American ways with East European tradition.
