The last synagogue built in nineteenth century New Jersey lies in Rosenhayn, a large township in Cumberland county; the synagogue, built about 1898 by congregation Or Yisrael, is located miles away from any population center, which poses the question of how the early settlers got to services since the Orthodox sects are not permitted to ride on the Sabbath. The farms were apparently smaller than, with plots of only a few acres, or even less, so we can assume that the population density was greater a century ago than today. Although well-maintained, the synagogue does not appear to be in use.
