Bridgeport architect Leonard Asheim designed many municipal and ecclesiastical buildings from 1910 to 1940.[2] Contents 1 History 2 See also 3 References 4 External links History The Orthodox synagogue was associated with Bridgeport's sizable Hungarian Jewish community whose members settled primarily in the city's West End. It now functions as a church, owned and occupied by Iglesia Christiana El Buen Pastor.[2] Congregation Ahavath Achim moved to Fairfield in the 1960s.[3] Congregation Ahavath Achim (in English, Brotherly Love) was founded in Bridgeport's West End in 1904, meeting in the homes of members until they were able to move to a more permanent location. As the immigrants prospered in their new homeland, they decided to build a "magnificent structure [using] the most modern techniques, glorious stained-glass windows, a beautiful Aron Ha-Kodesh, a lovely, traditional Bimah, Colonial pillars, a breath-taking landscaping development ... a gorgeous edifice that would evoke for a blessed generation the proud statement: 'This is my synagogue!'"[4] Achavath Achim Synagogue was one of fifteen Connecticut synagogues added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995 and 1996 in response to an unprecedented multiple submission, nominating nineteen synagogues.[5][6] See also Judaism portal Connecticut portal History of Bridgeport, Connecticut National Register of Historic Places listings in Bridgeport, Connecticut References ^ a b "National Register Information System".
