FAMILIES: Ginsberg

Around 1910, Isaac Ginsberg (1884-1956) immigrated to the United States from Russia with his wife, Pauline Kop Ginsberg (1886-1962), and their daughter Flossie Ginsberg Arnold (1907-1996). The Ginsbergs settled in Charleston, at first living in the neighborhood referred to as “Little Mexico,” where they owned a small grocery store on Hanover Street. Eventually, Ginsberg relocated the store to Sheppard Street.

The Jewish Merchant Project is supported by the generosity of the Henry & Sylvia Yaschik Foundation and the Stanley B. Farbstein Endowment at the Coastal Community Foundation.
