Podlaskie, Poland
Death: Oct. 11, 1965

The shocet (kosher butcher) for the Agudath Achim synagogue. This became an interesting position for the shocet who doubled as a cantor and also performed as a mohel for the community. According to the website, the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life, Ernie Atlas was working at Piggly Wiggly as a butcher, but later started his own kosher meat market and deli called Atlas Kosher Meat Market located at 525 Common Street in Shreveport. This shop was supervised and overseen by the Agudath Achim's Kashrut Committee. Mr. Atlas served in this role from 1934 to 1943 when he and his family removed to Tyler, Texas.
