Congregation Beth Hachasidim De Polen

Congregation Beth Hachasidim De Polen

233 East Broadway

In addition to the large synagogues of the Lower East Side, there were tiny congregations that gathered in tenement rooms, basements and storefronts. Today, many of these shtieblach (small congregations)—some more than a century old—continue to function, mainly on East Broadway. A representative shtiebl is Congregation Beth Hachasidim De Polen: Tzheirei Agudath Israel of Manhattan, one of the first branches of the national group Agudath Israel of America, a leading orthodox organization.

Congregation Beth Hachasidim De Polen (House of the Pious Men of Poland), was organized in 1904. The shtiebl is led by Rabbi Moshe Stern.
