"I am trying to find information about a synagogue located at 217 Forsyth St. in
Manhattan circa 1900. I have a marriage certificate with the address but cannot
make out the name of the synagogue nor of the Rabbi."

The best source to locate the names of the shtebls and synagogues of the lower
east side is the "Lower East Side Tour Book" by Oscar Israelowitz. In the back
of the book is a section, by street name and number, listing even the smallest
of shuls. This book appears to be out of print, but is held by many public and
university libraries and is also in the collections of many Jewish Genealogical
Societies and JCCs.
