Brith Sholom has temporarily suspended in-person services
Out of an abundance of caution, Brith Sholom has temporarily suspended in-person services at this time. Prayer services will resume, either in-person or via Zoom or Facebook Live from the Brith Sholom sanctuary, sometime soon.

On November 29, 1897, a charter for a synagogue in the city of Erie was approved by a local judge and recorded December 28 of that year. Congregation Brith Sholom was born. In August 1901 the first building was purchased at 324 East 18th street. In February 1906, the "Brith Sholom Church," as it was called, was sold, and the congregation moved to a lot on French Street, between 7th and 8th Streets.
In 1950, the congregation moved into a new building---the Jewish Center on 32nd and State Street where we remain to date.
We invite participants young and old to join in Jewish traditions and explore our faith together.
Brith Sholom is an open and egalitarian Jewish community that welcomes you to our shul.
