Of Interest

To celebrate its 125th anniversary, Congregation Anshe Emeth has created a video that recounts the history of the Jewish community in Hudson. The video, which can be viewed here, provides a fascinating look at Hudson history and some interesting historic photographs, including these two, which show, respectively, Boy Scouts parading on Warren Street in the days before urban renewal (shown is the corner of Warren and First streets) and the house that occupied the site of the current synagogue until 1965 when the synagogue was built.


  1. I know it was another day, but a 19C house was torn down! Ouch.
    The Purple Heart story very moving. I was always curious about the history of the Jewish community in Hudson. Well worth watching.

  2. Very interesting. And in 1902 when the Warren Street synagogue was dedicated, the city's mayor was Henry Hudson. Wow.
