Welcome to the Congregation of Adath Yeshurun

Our 90-year-old Adath Yeshurun synagogue stands at in Aiken at 154 Greenville Street, nestled amidst cedar, oak, and holly on the corner of Greenville and Barnwell streets. Among small town synagogues, ours is considered the longest observing synagogue in South Carolina.  We boast a membership of about 70 households.  We stay active in spite of membership fluctuations with the support of layleadership.  

In our charming temple, our wonderfully diverse Reform Jewish congregation keeps the Jewish flame alive in this Southern community, reknown for its polo, golf, gardens, nature trails, and arts. Join us, and you’ll be delighted with stories of our past and enchanted with the reality of a beautiful, delightful, sophisticated town.
