Last week, the NY Times published an article about the Jewish community of
Manhattan (NYC) giving away free matzah in 1858. In the online edition of the
New York Times, there was a link to the actual record (never before
exhibited) >from the American Jewish Historical Society which discusses the
names and addresses of 640 recipient families (about 3000 individuals, many
German of course) as well as institutions and their leadership. Enjoy!
