Latah Landmark

A piece of history just off Latah Street and near the cemetery. The Ahaveth Beth Israel Synagogue - the claim to fame? "...oldest synagogue west of the Mississippi in continuous use." A side note here about Latah. It's definitely a stretch of Boise in need of a makeover. Lots of aging strip malls, rundown housing, and weedy patches along the street.


  1. Unusual architecture for me, but I think it's lovely. I hope the neighborhood gets revitalized soon.

  2. Oy... Such a picture you take!

    The oldest Synagogue West of the Mississippi, Congregation Ahavath Beth Israel.


Thanks for stopping by!
