To avoid conscription into the Russian Army, Isaac Louis Schnitman was “adopted” by the Kadushin family, who had lost a son named Jacob Kadushin. Isaac changed his name to Jacob Kadushin, while his siblings retained the name Schnitman. Jacob arrived in Castle Garden Immigration Center (Castle Clinton National Monument) New York City in 1883, and was followed by his wife and children three years later. While in New York, Rabbi Kadushin translated the entire Shulchan Aruch into English and published it in 1915 as the “Jewish Code of Jurisprudence.” It went through at least 2 editions.
