Meir Chayim Temple, McGehee

Although southeast Arkansas' Jewish population is in decline, this small temple, built in 1947, continues to hold services. The Encyclopedia of Arkansas posts this article on the history of the temple and its congregation. Meir Chayim is on the National Registry of Historic Places and the Arkansas Historic Preservation write-up is here.

The double doors are made of deeply carved wood.
