Historic Temple Beth-El at Fifth Avenue and Seventy-sixth Street is being demolished to make room for an apartment house. The Romanesque edifice, once regarded as one of the finest synagogues in this country, now resembles a bombed-out building. Its floors are covered with rubble only the slender steel frame remains of the roof. The building, little used since the eve of Yom Kippur (the day of Atonement) of 1929, will be leveled in about six weeks. Its congregation merged with congregation Emanu-El in 1927 and both worshipped in the old synagogue until the new temple Emanu-el at Fifth Avenue and Sixty-fifth Street was dedicated on January 10, 1930. The Rev. Dr. Samuel Schulman, last rabbi of Temple Beth-El, recalled yesterday his last service there in 1929.
