Memories of Adas Yeshuan
This shul was called The Tyler Shul by all the people who went there. My
grandfather was a member and was at one time a trustee there. In fact I
had my Bar Mitzvah at this shul in 1941. His name was David Gold. We all
lived on Tyler and I went to McCullogh School. I lived at 2666 Tyler and
my grandfather lived two doors down from us. This was almost like a shetl
. Aunts and Uncles all lived on Tyler or close by. Hammerstein Drugs used
to be on the corner of Tyler and Linwood.and some of us used to work there
after school. The Avalon theatre was on the corner of Linwood and Davison
and that was the place to go on Saturday.
This was the synagogue my family attended when I was a
child. I spent many holidays inside (for a while) then outside playing
on the steps and talking with my friends. Seeing this picture brought
back many memories. I lived just a few blocks away on Tyler, across the
street from the elementary school.
was called Adas Yeshurun
