Congregation Mishkan Israel
 Congregation Mishkan Israel

137 Dakota Street, Isaiah Marcus, Rabbi, in 1930. In March, 2003, this location was used by Pentecostal House of Prayer for All People. It is unclear whether the building standing in 2003 was the orignal building used by the Congregation Mishkan Israel.

Probably built following the practice common to synagogue and church construction where a "basement" facility was built, and used by the congregation while construction of the main building was (hopefully) completed.
