About Solomon Prottas

Swartz-Waldbaum:

Solomon Prottas was educated in Minsk, Russia and employed as a teacher in Hebrew schools. He came with his family to New York in 1888 for six months, and then moved to New London, Connecticut, where he was a teacher and in the grocery business. In January of 1902, the family moved to Seattle, a place where some family had already resided, to be a teacher in Hebrew school and eventually own a furniture business on First Avenue. He was one of only three Jews featured in the book about early Seattle leaders, "Seattle and Environs" 1852-1954, Vol. II, Pioneer Historical Publishing Co. 1924. He was also a leader at Bikur Cholim and tried to make the word "modern" of real meaning (Jewish Transcript, 1924) and have students learn "about contemporary Jewish history and the expressiveness of modern Hebrew rather than merely translating a sacred text."
