Congregation Mikveh Israel
Congregation Mikveh Israel, known as the "Synagogue of the American Revolution," is the oldest formal congregation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the oldest continuous synagogue in the United States.
Mikveh Israel, "The Hope of Israel," was founded in 1740 and is an unparalleled American Jewish Institution.
It has a two-fold tradition that is the synthesis of the Spanish-Portuguese Jewish ritual and the ongoing development of the American Jewish community.
Located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at Fourth Street between Arch and Market, we are both an active community and proud progeny of a distinguished heritage and tradition.
