Shared Memories of Shaarey Zion

I think this is the building that is on Linwood where Highland dead ends into it. If so, my grandfather was the chazen here in the 1930s. It was an Orthodox shul and my family continued to attend services there through 1953, when we moved from the neighborhood. Shortly afterwards, it was sold to a church. In the 1930s, it stood next to a Piggly Wiggly Supermarket and in family lore it was always referred to, highly irreverently, as the Piggly Wiggly Shul
