Description
   Hyms to be sung during the prayer service. Keneseth Israel, was founded in march 1847, as the fourth congregation to be established by the expanding Jewish community of Philadelphia. Orthodox in observance at first, Keneseth Israel adopted Reform in 1855, and thus became the first progressive congregation in Philadelphia, and only the fifth in the entire country, to take the way of radical experimentation. For almost forty years, Keneseth Israel was the only reform congregation in Philadelphia.
