They first lived in [[Appleton, Wisconsin]], where his father served as Rabbi of the Zion Reform Jewish Congregation. According to the 1880 census, the family lived on Appleton Street.<ref>[[1880 US Census]] with Samuel M. Weiss, Cecelia (wife), Armin M.<!-- Is this supposed to be Herman? -->, Nathan J., Ehrich, Theodore, and Leopold.</ref> On June 6, 1882, Rabbi Weiss became an American citizen. Losing his tenure at Zion in 1887, Rabbi Weiss moved with Ehrich to New York City. They lived in a boarding house on East 79th Street. They were joined by the rest of the family once Rabbi Weiss found permanent housing. As a child, Ehrich Weiss took several jobs, next becoming a champion [[cross country running|cross country]] runner. He made his public début as a 9-year-old trapeze artist, calling himself "Ehrich, the prince of the air". Weiss became a professional [[magic (illusion)|magician]] and began calling himself "Harry Houdini" because he was heavily influenced by the French magician [[Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin]], and his friend Jack Hayman told him, erroneously, that in French, adding an "i" to Houdin would mean "like Houdin" the great magician. In later life, Houdini would claim that the first part of his new name, Harry, was a homage to [[Harry Kellar]], whom Houdini admired.
