Beth El Heritage Hall

Jews first settled in Helena in the early 1840s. In addition to serving Jews in Helena, Beth El was a regional congregation that attracted Jews from such smaller towns as Marianna, Marvell, Holly Grove, Trenton, and West Helena. In 2006, the historic Temple Beth El was given to the Delta Cultural Center by its congregation, and at that time the name was changed to Beth El Heritage Hall. A wayside on Perry Street discusses northern benevolent organizations in Civil War Helena. Currently available for rental for community events.
