The Temple - Adath Jeshurun Brith Sholom was founded in 1894, when former members of the disbanded Beth Israel Congregation acquired a vacant church at the corner of Floyd and Chestnut Streets for use as their synagogue. From 1919 to 1957, the congregation was located in the impressive Byzantine-style synagogue on the corner of Brook and College Streets. In 1957, the congregation moved to its current location in the Highlands. The name Adath Jeshurun means "Congregation of the Upright." Yeshurun is a name of affection that G-d has for Israel, and it appears in the Torah Deuteronomy 33:26.
