See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The purchase of a lot on which will be erected a new temple by Congregation B’nai Israel, the oldest congregation in California, was announced. It was founded by the state’s pioneers, 77 years ago.

Officers and trustees of the Temple are: Albert Elkus. Henry Haas, Myron S. Nathan, Edward Goldberg, I Brown, Max Simon, William Berman, Simon Hornstein, I. Kubel, Harry Kauffman, and Sam Lubin.

It is expected that construction on the new temple house, which will contain a place of worship, as well as large class rooms, studies, and assembly halls, will commence as soon as the architect’s plans have been approved.
