Historical Note: The idea of establishing a Conservative Congregation in Fall River, for the purpose of
strengthening traditional Judaism, began in 1923. In 1924, Edward Adaskin, a successful local furniture store
owner, invited fifteen men to his store to begin planning in earnest. The congregation of Temple Beth El was
officially organized in June 1924, with 60 charter members, and conducted its first services, on Bank Street in Fall
River, in September of that year. In February 1928, the Temple was destroyed by a devastating fire that engulfed
much of this section of the city. The next day, Edward Adaskin again convened a meeting in his store to discuss
rebuilding. A new location was chosen on the corner of High Street and Locust Street, and the cornerstone was laid
on October 28, 1928. By 1941, the Religious School, which offered six years of religious training, was founded, as
was an Institute of Adult Studies. In 1948 a nursery school was added. By 1945, the congregation had grown to 330
families. In 1952 ground was broken on a temple center addition, funded by the donation of $125,000 from the
estate of Jacob Ziskind and a subsequent gift of $50,000 from Albert List. The Jacob Ziskind Memorial Center was
dedicated on May 16, 1954.
