Congregation Ezrath Israel (“Helper of Israel,”) was founded in 1917 as the West Side Hebrew Relief Association. Our building, a national landmark, dates from 1923. We count among our former members the entertainers: Al Jolson, Joe E. Lewis, Sophie Tucker, Edward G. Robinson, Moe and Curly of the Three Stooges, Jack Benny, Shelley Winters, Milton Berle, Henny Youngman, and many, many others. Please see our History page for more information and photos.
