SignificanceIn 1903 Woodbine was incorporated as an all Jewish town with the synagogue as principle

building. It was built with colonists themselves providing all the labor. Woodbine was

considered the center for East European Jewish immigrants and promoted Jewish farming in

America. The Jewish agricultural society still exists and helps support Israeli farming

communities.
