Temple Emanu-El, the first Jewish congregation in North Texas, has played a historic role in the growth of Dallas. Founded in 1875, the temple evolved from the Hebrew Benevolent Association, organized in 1872 by eleven men who established a cemetery and held the first Jewish services. This initial gathering of pioneer Jews occurred just two weeks before the arrival of the first train--the indispensable catalyst for Dallas' development into a bustling commercial center. Arguably, Temple Emanu-El owes its ascendancy to the auspicious designation of Dallas as a railroad crossroads. Jews, like other enterprising newcomers, were drawn to the railroad boom town and became part of the westward sweep of trade and emigration to Dallas. These early settlers participated in every aspect of civic growth and responsibility. They invested their life savings in stores on the courthouse square, manned the volunteer fire department, and ran for public office. Like Alexander Sanger, who opened the Dallas branch of Sanger Bros. in 1872 and was elected city alderman the next year, Jews quickly identified with the progressive "Dallas spirit." While retaining the basic principles of their ancestral faith, Temple Emanu-El's Reform Jews adapted their religious practices to conform to the secular demands of life in America. With confidence in the city's promise of progress, congregants actively promoted Dallas' business, civic, and cultural development.
