Shared Memories of Mishkan Yisroel

My family attended services at the Blaine Shul with my grandfather, Jacob Goldstein. The Shul moved to Oak Park, on Nine Mile and it was called Mishkan Yisroel. My grandfather moved to Kenosha in O.P. To be near the Shul. I seem to remember those steps in the front of the old place as somebody else mentioned.

Didn't know that it wasn't called the Blaine shul, i lived on carter and Linwood, one block immediately north, and attended my earliest classes at age 8 years, of the United Hebrew School that were held in the basement "classroom" - there were about 10-15 children around my age. We attended there after public grade school for about a year, and subsequently our class group was relocated to the United Hebrew School's site at Philadelphia and Byron which was Ibelieve a two story building.

We were there for several years, and then the "school" or at least our class was relocated to a "store front location", I believe, a former tavern/bar that was remodeled by United Hebrew Schools and served that area of Detroit. It was located on the west side of Linwood, about 2-3 doors south of the intersection with Taylor. My family subsequently relocated to northwest Detroit in 1952. I then attended united Hebrew schools for the next several years in the classroom / administrative building adjoining congregation Adat Shalom, on Curtis, just west of Livernois.

The Adat Shalom synagogue was a beautiful sanctuary and contemporary building style for the time, understandably differing from the more traditional style of the shul's in the Dexter-Linwood area.

Rabbi Stollman was Rabbi here.

Blaine Shul I was bar-mitzvahed here in 1954, But I remember a long and wide series of steps leading up to the main entrance. It was an orthodox shul with 2 tiers inside, that is, a balcony above the bema that went around, as I remember, the entire shul.
- Ken

Also known as the "Blaine Shul", Mishkan Yisroel (Miskin Israel) is where I was bar mitzvahed in 1947.

The Shuls listed below, were better known by their location than their Hebrew names:

Ben Zion = Humphrey Shul
Beth Emmanuel = Taylor Shul 
Miskin Israel = Blaine Shul.

The Tudor building on the Corner of Linwood and Elmhurst was the Yeshiva Hachmay Lublin. The Yeshiva Beth Yehuda was located on the corner of Dexter and Cortland.
