Temple B’nai Sholom, located in the historic Twickenham District of downtown Huntsville is the oldest synagogue in Alabama in continuous use. The reform Congregation B’nai Sholom (Son’s of Peace) was founded in Huntsville July 30, 1876 by 32 area families.

Hunt construction of the Romanesque revival style building began in 1898 after the purchase of a lot on the corner of Clinton and Lincoln streets. R.H. Hunt also designed many other religious structures throughout the southeast including the original First Baptist Church at the corner of Clinton and Church St. in Huntsville…..

Two scholarships to the July 27-30 session at Wildacres Retreat in North Carolina have been donated in honor of Rabbi Jeffrey L. Ballon by Ann Lois Ballon. A drawing will be held on July 13 from names of IMS members who have joined between January 1 and July 12 of 2015.
