L’shanah tovah!

Today is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year. Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh sold tickets for High Holy Day services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur due to high attendance. So many people gathered for these observances that many were seated far back in the synagogue’s social hall.

Founded in 1904, Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh is one of Portland’s oldest synagogues. In 1954 the congregation moved from its Newbury Street location to Noyes Street, and is known locally as the Noyes Street Shul.

This ticket was contributed to Maine Memory Network by Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh. Learn more by viewing their items on MMN, and visiting the online exhibit, Shaarey Tphiloh, Portland’s Orthodox Synagogue.
