The Ocean Parkway Jewish Center was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009. The three-story building, constructed between 1925 and 1926, was designed in the Neoclassical style. It was built when Brooklyn became one of the world's important centers of Jewish life. The building includes a sanctuary, ballroom, classrooms, and a social hall. The congregation traces its history back to the establishment of the Tifereth Israel Congregation in 1907.
The Ocean Parkway Jewish Center is home to a congregation founded in 1907 as Tifereth Israel/First Congregation of Kensington. The formerly Conservative congregation now offers traditional orthodox services.
