B'nai Israel Synagogue is a historic synagogue on NY 52 in Woodbourne, Town of Fallsburg, Sullivan County, New York. The first rabbi of the synagogue was David Isaac Godlin (1868-1943). It was built in 1920 and is a two story building above a shallow concrete basement. It is a wood frame structure, three bays wide by four bays deep and surmounted by a steep gable roof with deep wooden cornice.
In the Spring of 2010 Rabbi Mordechai Jungreis, Rebbe of the Nikolsburg Hasidic dynasty, renovated the synagogue and was appointed Rabbi of the synagogue. Rabbi Jungreis, who has a synagogue in the Borough Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY has attracted a large following of Jews, specifically teenagers and young adults. The synagogue is to be used during the summer months, from Memorial day to Labor Day when Sullivan County sees a large influx of Jewish vacationers.
