Paul R. Marchesano on October 14, 2021:

From 1989 OHS Handbook: In 1871 the Congregation had moved from Orthodoxy to Reform Judaism, so it is not surprising that the building housed an organ; the "Jewish Temple" of Natchez appears on the 1890 opus list of George Jardine & Son. The Jardine organ was replaced with a 2-10 Henry Pilcher's Sons organ, Op. 408, 1901...The Jardine, meanwhile, had been sold for $500 lo the Church of the Mediator, Episcopal Church in Meridian, Mississippi. It is not there now."
