View of the rear of Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim, Charleston, South Carolina, with balcony and organ. This organ contains parts of the original instrument whose installation in the building in 1840 caused traditionalists in the congregation to secede, thereby making KKBE the first reform congregation in America.
