Congregation Chevra Shas
 Congregation Chevra Shas Synagogue

Located near Woodrow Avenue at the corner of Columbine Street and Ashton.

Built according to the practice common to synagogue and church construction (as you can see in the book Urban Exodus) where a "basement" facility was built, and used by the congregation while construction of the main building was (hopefully) completed. The Chevra Shas building never rose above the basement level.
