A House of Worship, Converted

Inside one doorway, the words of Exodus 25:8 curl in illuminated script across a cream-hued wall. “Make for me a sanctuary,” the verse reads, “and I will dwell in their midst.” Outside, a sign above the entrance denotes what this 114-year-old sanctuary has been renamed: the Cubs Den.

In the summer of 2012, the Sons of Israel synagogue, which had not housed a congregation since 1991, was repurposed as a souvenir store for the minor league baseball team next door. Before this season, the club ended a 17-year affiliation with the Arizona Diamondbacks and became the Class A team of the Chicago Cubs — hence the shop’s name and the bear claws inside.
