Actors Temple was founded in 1917 as the West Side Hebrew Relief Association. Its leaders were Orthodox Jews who owned shops in the rough-and-tumble district called Hell's Kitchen, at the time one of the world's busiest steamship ports. The founders borrowed a Biblical nickname for God, Ezrath Israel, "the One who assists Israel," as the name for their benevolent little Jewish community center.
Over time a bond formed between the shul and Jews working in another local industry, show business. Talent from vaudeville, musical theater, nightclubs, live television and the dramatic stage made the synagogue a true Actors Temple. Shelley Winters kept the holy days in our sanctuary. Several of the Three Stooges attended services too. The building contains memorials to superstars of yesteryear including Sophie Tucker, who used to headline an annual benefit for Actors Temple at a Broadway theater.
Eventually the nightclubs closed, television went west and vaudeville disappeared. Actors Temple declined along with the Times Square area, but the proud shul remained to anchor the neighborhood.
The Actors Temple Theatre presents off-Broadway shows on an ongoing basis.
