Historic Beth Joseph Synagogue

Adirondack Trail and Olympic Byway, State Rt. 30 and State Rt. 3, near Tupper Lake in Franklin County

A New York State and National Historical Site and the oldest Synagogue in the Adirondacks.

A New York State and National Historical Site. Beth Joseph is the oldest Synagogue in the Adirondacks. The site recently celebrated its centennial. Founded in 1905 to serve the few year round Jewish households living in Tupper Lake, the congregation never exceeded more than 35 families. After being closed for nearly four decades, the 1980s saw a successful fundraising and restoration effort for the building and its contents. There are 7 p.m. Friday evening services during July and August, as well as concerts and gallery exhibits. Beth Joseph houses a small museum of local Jewish historic and religious artifacts from local families. Open to the public in July and August, with tours on Tuesdays through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
