In 1895, Benton Harbor saw the beginnings of the first Jewish congregation worship.  Then in 1900, the first temple was built and at that time, $.05 per week was applied to members for maintenance of a cemetery.  Over the years this cemetery served the need of two conservative temples that have now merged together as the Temple B'nai Shalom.
