What was meant by the designation "rusische shul" or "Russian
Congregation"? Were the founders >from Russia itself and not >from the
"Pale of Settlement"? Or were the founders >from Ukraine which was often
considered part of Russia itself as opposed to those >from Lithuania and
I am inquiring specifically about the rusische or Russian Congregation
Anshei Sfard in Brockton, Massachusetts. Did all "Russian Congregations"
follow Nusach Sfard?
