From a Straw Hat to Anshe Sholom (1870 – turn of the century)
Anshe Sholom B’nai Israel Congregation began its service to Chicago’s Jewish community with a fight over a hat.
One hot day in the summer of 1870, Duber (Dov Ber) Ginsburg, an immigrant from Mariampol, Lithuania, appeared for services at the Bais Medrash Hagodol synagogue wearing a straw hat, but the leaders of the shul took exception to its frivolity, and threw him out. Offended, Mr. Ginsburg assembled a minyan from his old-country friends, and founded a competing shul called Ohave Sholom Mariampol, at Polk and Dearborn Streets.
Little more than a year later, the Great Chicago Fire drove many homeless Jews into their neighborhood, and membership grew rapidly. In 1892, the congregation merged with the Anshe Kalvarier shul, whose building had been demolished when 12th Street (now Roosevelt Road) was widened. The combined shuls adopted the name, “Anshe Sholom Congregation”.
In 1894, Anshe Sholom retained the first of our great Rabbis, Abraham Samuel Braude zt’l, who served until his death in 1907, and the shul took its place in the top rank of Chicago Jewry. All the same, it was long known informally as “the Mariampoler Shul” and also, truth be told, “The Straw Hat Shul.”
