Located in Hell’s Kitchen, The Actors Temple is a synagogue founded in 1917 that became the synagogue of choice for the entertainment industry. Some of America’s greatest early 20th century entertainers such as Sophia Tucker, Jack Benny, Milton Berle, and the Three Stooges attended the temple’s services. The temple’s community declined just after World War II as the hub of the entertainment industry shifted from New York to Los Angeles, but it has managed to stay intact through maintaining its ties with the entertainment world. The temple, now equipped with a stage, rents out space to dance groups and often is transformed into theatre space for performances.
