“Our 1962 membership is now comprised of thirty six families. Our Jewish population is now 113.”The first recorded Jewish presence in Latrobe was Henry Fellheimer who in 1864 was a substantial citizen being elected as Assistant Burgess. He owned a clothing store at the corner of Depor and Ligonier Streets. The second Jew to settle in lLtrobe was Mr. Simon Schott. Mr. Schott operated a clothing store for a short time in the Miller Hotel Building on Ligonier Street. Most of the Jews arriving in Latrobe settled in the First Ward area of Latrobe in a section that became known as “Jew Town”. In 1907, on land donated by Harry Tapolsky, the first synagogue was built on Miller Street. This Synagogue remained active until a new building was erected at the present location on Weldon Street in 1954.
