On June 3, 1948, thirty Jews gathered at the Brevoort Hotel on the northeast corner of Fifth Avenue and Eighth Street. Led by Harry Burnbaum, Max Cohen and C.S.White, their agenda was to discuss the re-organization of the Jewish Community Center into a "liberal Jewish" congregation for residents of Greenwich and the lower West Side areas. At that time, there were only two congregations in the area, both Orthodox: one on Charles Street and one on West 23rd Street. Before purchasing their permanent building on 12 Street on January 11, 1956, village temple held service different location throughout the east village. Nine years after it’s founding, the Village Temple opened its doors on Saturday, September 14, 1957, welcoming its congregants and neighbors. Among the speakers was Rabbi Davis, as well as Rabbi Samuel Silver, representing the Union of American Hebrew Congregations. A formal dedication for the Temple was held on Monday, September 16, 1957.
