Arnold and Shirley Prystowsky


Arnold and Shirley Prystowsky are natives of Charleston. Throughout their lives they have contributed to and benefited from the tightly knit Charleston Jewish Community. Married in 1955 at Brith Shalom Beth Israel, the Prystowskys have two sons, Edward, husband to Lori, and Joel, husband to Carol. They also have two grandchildren, Freda and William. For forty-five years Arnold owned and operated Prystowsky and Son, a retail clothing store. Shirley spent her children’s youths as a homemaker and later worked as a travel agent. It is their feeling that Jewish education should be a priority in young people’s lives and in this spirit they have been great supporters of the Jewish Studies Program.
