Shaarey Tphiloh Constitution and Bylaws, Portland, ca. 1920

Contributed by Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh

The constitution and bylaws of Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh in Portland were adopted on Nov. 13, 1904 when two of three existing Orthodox congregations in Portland -- Shaarith Israel and Beth Hamidrash Hagadol -- came together.

The Orthodox synagogue was chartered May 28, 1900. It was located at 149 Newbury Street in Portland and served a congregation primarily of immigrants. Many of the original documents are written in Yiddish.

The officers of the original congregation were Barnard D. Shalit, president; Benjamin Snider, vice president; Samuel Rosenberg, treasurer; and Nathan Stein, secretary.
