About Beth Hebrew Synagogue:
The story of Beth Hebrew begins with a man named Elias Loewy, who is also known as the “Jewish Schindler." Loewy was a German-born survivor who is remembered for his heroic rescue of more than 1,500 Jews from concentration camps in France during World War II. After the war, he moved his family to the U.S., first settling in New York, then on doctor’s advice, in Arizona in 1948. After settling in the Valley, Loewy helped establish the city’s first Orthodox Jewish congregation.
“This is a building that has significant social history because it was co-founded by somebody who escaped the Nazis, because of the congregants who went here, because Steven Spielberg had his Bar-Mitzvah here," journalist Deborah Sussman said.
In the early 1970s, members of the congregation migrated elsewhere in the Valley, leaving the Synagogue empty — and it eventually fell in into disrepair.
Developer Michael Levine purchased the building in 2015 and immediately began renovations. In September, Levine officially reopened the synagogue for an informal Rosh Hashanah service.
