Anshe Slonim Synagogue
Anshe Slonim Synagogue
Lower East Side, Manhattan The building at 172-176 Norfolk Street is the oldest surviving structure built as a synagogue in New York City. Constructed in 1849-50, it was commissioned for Congregation Anshe Chesed, the third Jewish congregation to be established in New York. This large and influential congregation was also the second group in New York to embrace the Jewish Reform movement. The first of numerous congregations to locate on New York's Lower East Side, Anshe Chesed employed Alexander Saeltzer, a German architect who also designed the original Astor Library, to create a large and impressive Gothic style synagogue building. Despite the ravages of time to the building, its graceful arches and delicate tracery continue to enhance this historic neighborhood with remsnbrances of other, more prosperous times. The Jewish Community in New York The first Jews arrived in the Dutch colony of Nieuw Amsterdam in 1654, coming from Brazil in an abortive attempt to get to Holland. Deceived by a ship's captain and deposited in an unfriendly environment, this small group of travelers had to rely on their endurance and ingenuity to get them through the first winter. By spring, official notification arrived from the Dutch West India Company (which included many influential Dutch Jews among its shareholders), granting than permission to stay, against the will of Peter Stuyvesant. Gradually, the Jews received some rights of citizenship, but these did not include the right to publicly practice their religion. With England's occupation of New York, their political as well as religious rights were widened. Around 1682, the first Jewish congregation in New York was established, Congregation Shearith Israel or Remnant of Israel. Their fairly slow population growth shows that Jews did not rush to immigrate to the New World. By the beginning of the eighteenth century there were still fewer than 100 Jews in New York. Those who did come to America however, were creating Jewish population centers in a variety of cities, including Newport, Philadelphia, Richmond, Savannah, and Charleston. Charleston's first congregation was established in 1749, while Newport's was started in the mid-1750s. Only in 1729, seventy-five years after their first arrival in the colony, did the Jews of New York feel secure enough politically to build their first synagogue building. This small masonry structure 35 feet square and 21 feet high, with tall arched windows and a pyramidal roof, was located on Mill Street (now William Street). This served the congregation until 1818, when population growth necessitated its enlargement. Due to the fall of Napoleon, a large wave of immigrants came to New York between 1815 and 1825, increasing the city's Jewish population significantly. The Jews who came during this period were mostly from Central Europe and were known as Ashkenazim. The original Jewish settlers were of Spanish origin and were known as Sephardim. While there was no basic divergence of religious belief between the two groups, there was a difference in customs, in rituals, and in pronunciation of the Hebrew language. In the early years of the community, however, it was considered of utmost importance to present a united front to the rest of the world, no matter what differences existed. The Sephardim, as the earlier settlers, were considered the established group, and were somewhat more assimilated and more affluent than the newly arriving Ashkenazim. With the large influx of Ashkenazim in the years between 1815 and 1825, the differences between the groups could no longer be kept under cover. In 1825, after several attempts at reconciliation, a group of German and Polish Jews broke away from Congregation Shearith Israel to form Congregation B'nai Jeshurun. This defection proved to be a turning point for New York's Jewish community as it was followed by many others in rapid succession. The third group to break away was Congregation Anshe Chesed, formed in 1828, by Jews from Germany, Poland and Holland. The next few years saw the formation of Congregation Ohabey Zedeck in 1835, Shaarey Zedeck and Shaarey Hashamayim in 1839, Rodeph Shalcm in 1842, Beth Israel, in 1843 and Shaarey Tefilah in 1845. By 1860, there were approximately 27 synagogues in New York, most of which had resulted from divisions within existing synagogues. These new synagogues were formed primarily because of the desire to worship with fellow countrymen using common rituals, but there were also political differences and different interpretations of religious law and customs which led to these divisions. During this period the Jewish population increased tremendously, rising from 400 in 1812, to 10,000 in 1846 to 60,000 in 1880. Anshe Chesed Congregation Anshe Chesed, the name of the third New York congregation to be established, means in Hebrew, "People of Kindness." The members of this new organization were mostly recent immigrants, extremely tradition

Ravagee par un incendie en 1816, elle est aussitot reconstruite sur les memes plans. La paroisse Saint-Roch, premiere paroisse a etre detachee de celle de Notre-Dame de Quebec, est erigee canoniquement en 1829. On entreprend a cette occasion l'amenagement interieur de l'eglise selon les plans de Thomas Baillairge. En raison du nombre croissant de fideles, l'eglise est agrandie en 1841 par le meme architecte et dotee d'une facade monumentale encadree de deux tours. A peine quatre ans plus tard, l'edifice est aneanti dans l'incendie qui devaste le faubourg. On reconstruit l'eglise sur les memes murs, entre 1845 et 1847, mais cette fois la nef est bordee de bas-cotes. Charles Baillairge, petit-cousin de Thomas, dessine les nouveaux clochers. L'architecture interieure, avec ses deux etages de galeries laterales, est realisee de 1848 a 1852 par Louis-Thomas Berlinguet, selon les plans de Raphael Giroux. Cette eglise monumentale domine le quartier tout au long de la seconde moitie du XIXe siecle, mais des 1880 architectes et experts s'accordent a dire qu'il faut la reconstruire. Ce n'est toutefois qu'en 1913 que la paroisse prend la decision de batir une eglise plus vaste et encore plus imposante. La fabrique retient a cette fin les services des architectes Eugene-Michel Talbot et J.-A.-T. Dionne, une firme de Saint-Roch. Ils proposent un style neomedieval a la nouvelle eglise, un style qui marie les styles roman et gothique, suivant en cela, les principes du mouvement rationaliste francais, inspire par l'architecture et les restaurations d'Eugene-Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc. Le chantier debute en aout 1914 par la construction d'un nouveau presbytere. Cet edifice acheve, les travaux du gros oeuvre de l'eglise commencent l'annee suivante, au chevet de l'ancienne eglise, et s'effectuent en deux phases. On celebre les premiers offices religieux dans la nouvelle eglise des juillet 1917, et la construction de la partie avant s'amorce aussitot apres le demantelement de l'ancien temple en mai 1918. L'eglise, longue de 79,5 metres (261 pieds) et large de 33,3 metres (109 pieds), comporte une charpente d'acier revetue de granit sombre extrait des carrieres de Riviere-a-Pierre. Elle est surmontee de deux tours qui atteignent 45 metres (147 pieds) de hauteur. Malgre le deces de l'architecte Talbot, puis de l'entrepreneur, et en depit de la guerre, les travaux progressent. L'eglise est livree au culte en avril 1920, mais vu le cout eleve du chantier, l'interieur reste inacheve. En 1923, la fabrique fait appel a Louis-Napoleon Audet pour realiser l'architecture interieure. Il propose la suppression des grandes galeries laterales prevues dans le projet initial. L'interieur revele un espace ample forme de trois nefs de hauteur presque egale. Les murs sont revetus de pierre peignee, alors que la voute est recouverte de ciment sur treillis. L'architecte a recours a certains metiers artisanaux: menuiserie fine et sculptee (mobilier), mosaique (autels), fer forge (luminaire), et sculpture sur pierre. Le mobilier, realise en chene blanc par l'atelier Joseph Villeneuve et Fils, de Saint-Romuald, a ete entierement dessine par l'architecte Louis-Napoleon Audet. Les bancs sont installes en 1924 et le mobilier du sanctuaire est mis en place en 1925. Le maitre-autel et les autels lateraux en marbre proviennent des ateliers Daprato, de Chicago. La chaire et le banc d'oeuvre, en bois, ont ete sculptes en 1934 par Elzear Filion, suivant les plans de l'architecte. Les verrieres ont ete fabriquees par la maison Hobbs de Montreal et ont ete installees en 1929-1930, periode ou s'achevent les travaux a l'interieur de l'eglise. On y retrouve aussi quelques tableaux de maitres. L'eglise Saint-Roch a perdu de son importance visuelle dans le quartier depuis la construction d'un hotel sur le terrain avant de l'eglise et la construction du Mail centre-ville en 1974. Elle a failli ensuite fermer ses portes, faute de paroissiens pour subvenir a ses besoins. C'est finalement en 1984 que l'archeveque de Quebec a decide de maintenir cette paroisse. Avec la demolition partielle du Mail centre-ville en 2000 et le projet de revitalisation du secteur, le monument constitue l'une des pi

The Devil in Pew Number Seven
2011 Retailers Choice Award winner!
Rebecca never felt safe as a child. In 1969, her father, Robert Nichols, moved to Sellerstown, North Carolina, to serve as a pastor. There he found a small community eager to welcome him—with one exception. Glaring at him from pew number seven was a man obsessed with controlling the church. Determined to get rid of anyone who stood in his way, he unleashed a plan of terror that was more devastating and violent than the Nichols family could have ever imagined. Refusing to be driven away by acts of intimidation, Rebecca’s father stood his ground until one night when an armed man walked into the family’s kitchen . . . And Rebecca’s life was shattered. If anyone had a reason to harbor hatred and seek personal revenge, it would be Rebecca. Yet The Devil in Pew Number Seven tells a different story. It is the amazing true saga of relentless persecution, one family’s faith and courage in the face of it, and a daughter whose parents taught her the power of forgiveness.
