Shared Memories of Ezras Achim Turover

The Turover Shul, as I knew it, was on Richton at the corner of Linwood. (S.W. corner) Being a young girl child I would sit with my father in the men's' section. My grandmother would sit in the front row of the women's' section and I could see her quite plainly. We had wonderful Simcha Torah holidays marching around with our flags and apples on top. For the holiday Succoth, the Succah was right outside on Richton and very impressive to a young child. There was a basement where the kids would go when the "davening" got to be too long. I have very fond memories of this synagogue and it was named for a section of Poland/Russia from where many of the members had come.

I just learned about your site and have spent several minutes reliving days of my youth. Although I do not have the time right now to get into detail, I can give you a bit more on the Ezras Achim synagogue on Dexter. First off, my father, Rabbi Abraham Gardin, was its Rabbi during the fifties. I spent many hours at prayer and play (in the basement social hall) at what was commonly referred to as the Tourover Shuel (Cong. Ezras Achim-Tourover Aid Society, I think was its full name. I will have to check with my Mom when I have an opportunity.)
