1. Temple Beth Zion Marker
Inscription. Founded in 1850, the congregation of Temple Beth Zion worshiped at different locations in Buffalo before erecting a synagogue at 599 Delaware Avenue in 1890. Following its destruction by fire in 1961, architect Max Abramowitz designed the current building, which was dedicated in 1967. The encircling walls represent the Ten Commandments and the rise skyward. The main sanctuary includes stained glass windows, a Holy Ark, a Menorah and Ten Commandment tablets, all by artist Ben Shahn. The Cofeld Judaic Museum is housed within.
 
Erected 2000 by Cofield Judaic Museum, E. and C. Karnofsky, Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society.
