A relative who helped to bring my grandmother to America was once the
president of both the Elm St. Synagogue and the Walnut St. Synagogue in Chelsea,
Mass., sometime before his death in 1949.
I am wondering if he might have purchased yahrzeit plaques for his mother and
grandparents who never came to America. If so, they might have dates on them
as well as information regarding their father's names.
I heard that the Walnut St. Synagogue still exists but I have no information
about the Elm St. Synagogue. Is there anyone associated with either of these
two synagogues who would guide or help me on how to find this information about
these old yahrzeit plaques?
