Going through family papers I came across a reference to:
Rabbi Alexander Lyons
Eighth Avenue Temple
Brooklyn, NY
My mother remembers the name of her Hebrew teacher in 1927 was Rabbi
Lyons. Possibly the same person? Unfortunately I have not been
successful finding any other references.

Does anyone know if this Temple did indeed exist and if so where their
records would be stored.
The temple exists and is thriving. It is Congregation Beth Elohim. Rabbi
Lyons was probably your mother's teacher. If I remember correctly, he was
followed by Rabbi Landman and then Rabbi Sack (when I became a Bar
Mitzvah). The current rabbi is Gerald Wieder. For an email link to the
Temple, go to
