The article focuses on the B'nai Israel Jewish congregation in Sacramento, California in 1867. A synagogue has been erected with a tabernacle for the B'nai Israel through the efforts of its chief manager L. Elkus. Services were held Friday evenings and Saturday mornings. Reverend William Stamper from New York was rabbi at the synagogue from 1865 to 1868. He served the congregation as a Hazan or cantor and teacher. Master Simon Steinman, son of Israel Steinman, was confirmed in the synagogue on February 9, 1867, and was prepared for Hebrew reading by the Reverend Stamper.
