JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Eta TOFFEL - Yiddish theater in NYC #general

Sheila Toffell

Has anyone any knowledge of Eta TOFFEL (spelling may not be correct) who was
apparently involved in the Yiddish Theater in NYC?

My nephew is a doctoral student in London, and is doing research on the
Yiddish theater. He came across a reference to Eta TOFFEL in a book he found
in junk shop. As the name is the same as ours, we are intrigued.

Can anyone help enlighten him (and me)?
