I am writing regarding Ron Russ's Feb.15,1999 inquiry about the First
Rymalower Young Men's Benevolent Association.
In Oscar Israelowitz, "Lower East Side" published by Israelowitz
Publishing, 1996 (A Tourbook), I found a listing for the Rymalower Kehilah
B'nai Jacob. It was located at 218 East 2nd Street. Perhaps the Young Men's
Association was affiliated with the Kehilah.
I hope that Mr. Russ can find out about this question when YIVO reopens.
