While the city is filled with large, prominent synagogues, there were countless other smaller houses of worship that dotted the city. They’re often forgotten, such as Mishkan Israel, which combined with Shirei Thillim, located down at 13th and Carr in the heart of the oldest Jewish neighborhood in St. Louis. The synagogue has apparently moved out to University City.

My Father, Julius H. Funk was president of the Synagogue in the 1940s and 1950s
Thank you for sharing!
Iím sure you know this but the text is a little misleading. Pics are of Sherei Thillim on DeBaliviere not of Mishkan Israel downtown.
As part of a series of articles about DeBaliviere history, I will be writing about this old synagogue. I am especially interested in Marilyn Funk Kaufman’s reply. If you would like to share more about your father, Julius H. Funk’s, experience as president of the synagogue, please let me know at email@example.com.
