It dedicated a new temple at 3411-19 Douglas Boulevard in 1913. An article on the planning of this temple was published in the Chicago Tribune on Dec. 23, 1912. In the 1950s, the congregation merged with Torah Synagogue and moved to 75th and Yates, according to A Walk to Shul by Kraus and Schwartz.
