<p>Temple Beth El, which overlooks Springhouse Road and Route 22, is a thriving, conservative Jewish congregation that was founded in Allentown in 1919. The first services were held in a room, then a hall, and by 1949, a new temple was established at 17th and Hamilton Streets in Allentown.</p> <p>But as the congregation continued to grow, Temple Beth El looked to relocate to the suburbs, raising money and working toward building a new synagogue. The congregation's drive and dedication was realized in 2006, when the new, 33,500 square foot synagogue opened in South Whitehall. It holds the stained glass, as well as a cornerstone, from the original synagogue.</p>
