A farewell to Quincy’s last synagogue
As demographics change, the last temple in Quincy is up for sale
For more than half a century, Temple Beth El has stood at the corner of Hancock and Bridge streets in Quincy as a religious landmark of the city’s once-burgeoning Jewish community. Today, it is the last synagogue in the city, and it is being put up for sale. Once with more than 400 families at its peak, the congregation has only 35 members today.
