Synagogue/Society Description: United Orthodox Synagogues of Houston, commonly referred as UOS, was formed almost 50 years ago when three separate shuls, Adath Emeth, Adath Israel and Beth Jacob merged into one congregation and adopted that name.  The oldest of those, Adath Israel was founded in 1905 at the time when the ‘Galveston Movement’, which sought to redirect Jewish immigration away from New York towards the center of the country through the Texas port, brought hundreds of Jews to Houston between 1905 and 1914.
