Discover Our Story

It is interesting to note, that this Community was actually organized in 1910 and was known as “Sons & Daughters of Israel ”. Meetings and services were held in rented halls and private homes.  In 1920, the first building at 512 York St , Vallejo was purchased.The Community was organized into the first formal Vallejo Synagogue. On December 6, 1925, the mortgage on this building was redeemed.

On August 22, 1945 the present property at 1256 Nebraska St , Vallejo , was purchased. Ground-breaking ceremonies were held on April 20, 1947.  On April 11, 1948, the present synagogue building was dedicated.  The community hired its first rabbi – Rabbi Sol Horowitz. Its official name became Temple B’nai Israel .
