So How Much for an Old West Synagogue?

Recommended Posts

In the old west, what would there have been? Different buildings for different religions who raised the money for them.

 

I don't know what it would cost. Are they expensive? Can we get one from the Sears catalog?

 

If they're toooo expensive, then should we build another one that is multi-purpose?

 

If we were to raise money for a synagogue, that'd be cool. But I'm not orthodox, not into being separated from the men, etc.

 

Could we have an early easy-go synagogue with its Jewish propers, but not requiring that of me?

Ahhh.... brings to mind "The Frisco Kid," with Gene Wilder and Harrison Ford. Late 70's, as I recall - a fun movie! ^_^

Here is a bit I found:

 

The first synagogue in California was Congregation B'Nai Israel, formed in 1852 in Sacramento. B'Nai Israel moved into a building used previously as the Methodist Episcopal Church. The land to build Temple Emanuel in Spokane, Washington, 1892, was contributed by a Christian to encourage Jewish religious life.

 

Synagogue communities formed in Sacramento, California – 1852, Houston, Texas, 1854, Portland, Oregon 1858, Tombstone, Arizona 1861, Tombstone, Denver, Colorado 1875, Las Vegas, New Mexico 1884, Spokane, Washington, 1892, Eureka, Nevada, 1880, Helena, Montana, 1890, Salt Lake City, Utah, 1891, Boise, Idaho, 1895.

 

I didn't find photos from before the first few decades of the 1900s. Well, there may have been a few, but no attribution of when the structure was built.

 

Here is one in San Francisco, sometime before 1906 http://www.sturm.to/blog2/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/elemanuel-3-big-3a28209u.jpg

Yes, Hardpan. I have that movie and enjoy it. Love the actors in it.

Ah! Well, I'm sure it was lovely. But if we did it, it'd have to be rather simple. Just thinking. And probably not necessary. Maybe I can just hang around the Oak with the Druid?
