Congregation Shearith Israel is the oldest Jewish Congregation in North America. During the American Revolution, the congregation was staunchly patriotic and closed the synagogue during the British occupation of New York, much of the congregation spent the duration of the war in Philadelphia. Many of our congregants participated in the war and served in various militias or the Continental Army during the War of Independence. Each year on the weekend prior to Memorial Day weekend, we hold a special memorial service at our historic Chatham Sq. cemetery in lower Manhattan. For many years, the Veteran Corps of Artillery has provided a color guard at this service.
