I agree with Jeremy G. Frankel that "The Sentinel" was one of the Jewish
newspapers published in Chicago in 1915. In addition, the "Advocate" (voice of
Reform Jewry) was also published. If you look in my Infofile "Guide to Jewish
Genealogy in Chicagoland" at www.JewishGen.org/Infofiles/Chicago you can find
more info by clicking on "Life in Jewish Chicago" under Types of Records.
Both of these publications are in the library of the Spertus Institute for
Jewish Studies (in Chicago). You can e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org .

My step grandmother was lost on the Lusitania May 8 1915 after visiting her
son in Chicago
I am in London UK and checked our Newspaper library - I found reports in the
Chicago dailies but the only Jewish newspaper was in Yiddish which I could
Was there a Jewish journal published in Chicago 1915 in English ?
