There is no Jewish Genealogical presence in Charleston, SC. The 3
synagogues have records of the Jewish cemeteries and there is a Jewish
Community Center, but no cemetery attached. The addresses for the 3
synagogues are:
KK Beth Elohim (Reform)
86 Hassell Street
Charleston, SC 29401

Brith Shalom Beth Israel (Orthodox)
182 Rutledge Ave
Charleston, SC 29403

Synagogue Emanu-El (Conservative)
5 Windsor Dr
Charleston, SC 29407

The oldest Synagogue is KK Beth Elohim Dating >from 1749. It was originally
Orthodox, but is now the Cradle of Reform Judaism and the oldest Reform
Synagogue in the World.

Hope this helps you.

Dear Group

Does anyone know if there is a Jewish Genealogical Presence in
Charleston SC? I have checked the IAJGS listings and there is no
society listed, I know that there is a large Jewish community there.

I need some help and am contemplating a trip there, Please respond
