dc.description The newsletter contains information on upcoming activities and events for the Jewish community in Baytown, Texas, created by Congregation K'nesseth Israel.
dc.description.abstract By 1920, Jewish families that had migrated to the Baytown area during the oil boom in the early twentieth century rented a building to use as a place of worship. In the fall of 1928, Congregation K’nesseth Israel was chartered by twenty Jewish residents. A synagogue was completed in 1930 and the building was listed as a Texas Historical Landmark in 1992. Since the early 1950s the congregation has been without a rabbi and led by lay members.
