Founded in 1749, Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim has been a part of the Charleston fabric for over 266 years. KKBE’s first sanctuary was destroyed by the great fire of 1838. The current sanctuary built in 1840 is considered one of the finest examples of Greek revival architecture. It is the second oldest synagogue building in the United States and the oldest in continuous use.
