In December 1870, twenty four men formed Beth El Emeth (House of God of Truth). Two years later, they constructed Camden’s first synagogue. In 1937, 60 Jews still lived in Camden. In 1927, they sold their synagogue with hopes of building a new one. In the late 1930s, Henry Berg built a small synagogue, irregularly used. No Jews remain in Camden. [January 2009]
