The last surviving synagogue from the early 20th century in Boyle Heights, Breed Street Shul (Congregation Talmud Torah) is reminiiscent of B'nai Jeshurun Synagogue in New York City, designed by W.S. Schneider and H.B. Hertz in 1918.

The synagogue built of brick, was severly damaged during the 1987 Whittier Narrows Earthquake. It was closed permanently in the mid '90s, and has since suffered extensive deterioration. The J. Paul Getty Trust is leading an effort to preserve the property and adapt for re-use as a community center. The synagogue was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on November 4, 2001.

The Breed Street Shul is located at 247 N. Breed Street in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles.
