    From the synagogue wensite:

    Services were Orthodox until the late 1960’s, during which time the community enjoyed a full time rabbi. With the
    untimely death of Rabbi Chaim Gross in 1970, and a changing Jewish population the religious focus of the congregation
    moved away from orthodox tradition to encompass the broad spectrum of Jewish spiritual and cultural tradition. At the
    same time the demographics within the town’s Jewish community were changing as older members of the congregation
    retired and younger members went on to college and to seek their fortunes elsewhere. During the late 1970’s and 1980’s
    Congregation Beth El fell into disuse and disrepair.
