Congregation B'Nai Zion was chartered in 1900, and the 35 members initially met in private homes or rented space. This building, the first Jewish synagogue in El Paso, was completed in 1912. The structure features an unusual combination of classical and Gothic revival styling. After B'Nai Zion congregation moved to larger facilities in 1927, this building housed El Paso's First Eastern Orthodox Church. St. Nicholas Greek Church worshiped here for a quarter of a century.
