Park Slope Jewish Center (NW corner Fourteenth Street)

Via 9-Feb-2010 email from L. Altschuler, who is preparing a historical exhibit about PSJC, a synopsis:

 - B'nai Jacob - founded about 1873

 - Tifereth Israel - founded in about 1900

            They merged in         to become Bnai Jacob Tifereth Israel

-  Bnai Sholaum - founded in 1896 & merged with Bnai Jacob Tifereth Israel in 1960 to become Park Slope Jewish Center

 

Bnai Jacob was located at 136 Prospect Ave - I understand that's right where the Prospect Expressway is now.

Bnai Sholaum had a building on 9th St, around 5th Ave, that was torn down in 1914 to build a theater.  It then moved up to 401 9th st  - to a new building that then became an American Legion and is again a synagogue.

Tifereth Israel - at 232 15th St in 1900

                        then 411 7th Ave

                                            in 1915 - purchased 397 & 399 14th St.

                                            1925 - cornerstone laid at current building at 14th St & 8th Ave.

Listed on state/national registers.

Architect: Allen A. Blaustein, local Brooklyn architect.
