Mount Sinai Alliance Welfare Society was built on three fundamental pillars which have been the essence of its philosophy: Welfare – Education – Religion. In June 1912, Mexican Jews decided to come together in a group that would provide mutual aid and improve their life conditions. That is how Mount Sinai Alliance Welfare Society was born, in an effort to provide care for all of the Jewish families residing in the Mexican Republic. The Jews who joined the group acquired in 1914 a plot of land in Calzada Mexico Tacuba in order to start a cemetery, an urgent need of the community. In order to buy this land, they started to charge a monthly fee of 25 cents a month per family. The second purchase was in 1918. It consisted of a house in at 83 Justo Sierra. Later on, the house was rebuilt into a beautiful temple that also serves as the Society's main offices. The temple still exists and is active to this day. In 1918, Mount Sinai Alliance Welfare Society was legally recognized by the gobernment of Venustiano Carranza.
