THE SYNAGOGUE, THE BUTCHER, AND THE TRIPLE DECKER

Our narrators told rich, descriptive stories about the Jewish daily life and character of their neighborhoods. Their remembrances bring alive streets filled with shops, triple-decker houses, and Yiddish-speaking neighbors; describe weekly visits to synagogue and Hebrew school; and capture the bond and community spirit among Jewish families living close together and looking out for one another.
