"The Oldest Synagogue West of the Mississippi"

This Moorish-style synagogue is small in size but dripping in history. Built in 1896, it has the honor of being the nation's oldest continually-used temple on the western side of the Mississippi. Former Idaho Governor Moses Alexander, the first Jewish governor in the United States, was instrumental in the temple's founding. The architects tried to copy a Toledo, Spain temple, and their success is obvious with a distinctively Spanish feel in the synagogue.
