Shared Memories of The Lost Synagogues of Detroit

I attended Beth Moses on Linwood almost every Saturday from approximately 1957 until 1960 or 1961. The rabbi was Rabbi Frankel who also tutored me until my bar mitzvah. He was from Iraq if I remember correctly but the shul was Romanian. The Secretary of the shul was Oscar Garrison , my step-grandfather, who was also born in Romania. Oscar helped negotiate the merger with Evergreen. Usually the Saturday congregation consisted of elderly men who were from the old country. I remember them well as they always treated me with kindness.

I went to Sunday School here around 1950. This was the Romanian Shul and
the architecture was considered very modern at the time.
- Marcia D.

Beth Moses was the 'Roumanian Shul' and also hosted a B'nai Brith lodge (Pisgah, I believe). This was it's last Orthodox venue before merging with the "Evergreen Congregation (C) at 7 mile and Evergreen. After the construction of the Lodge I used to walk here with my grandfather oover the Lodge from Linwood & 6 mile circa 1960 as the closer shuls like Shaarey Shomayim petered out.

I think the confusion comes from (after looking at the site again) the letters from visitors which accompany it... they seem to indicate that Beth Moses went from Linwood to West Bloomfield through their mergers, which is not true regardless of any cornerstones. The longest home for Beth Moses was on Evergreen and 7 Mile Road. Someone should speak with Rabbi Shnipper. In all the years that I attended Beth Moses, I never heard about the Linwood building or location. I do know that there had been an Evergreen congregation and perhaps it is this shul that merged with Beth Moses to form the 'Beth Moses' that I grew up with which later merged with Beth Abraham Hillel.

The mystery approaches solving!

- P. Konstam

That's it. I had my Bar Mitzvah here in May, 1954. I don't know much, except it is a modern building of the 50s. My guess it that this wasn't a synagogue very long before the whole congregation left the area.
- Arnie

Beth Moses later merged with Beth Abraham Hillel which became Beth Abraham Hillel Moses.  Somewhere on 7 Mile is an old Beth Abraham - I know that because that is where my parents where married. All I remember is it is on the North East corner of the intersection. The congregation is currently located on Maple Road in West Bloomfield and is now known as Beth Ahm (for Abraham Hillel Moses).
