My great-grandfather was an extremely religious Jew who emigrated from
Russia to Madison Street on the Lower East Side in 1909. I am trying
to find out which synagogue he belonged to. I am aware that most of
the small Lower East Side synagogues are long since defunct, but I'm
wondering if anyone has any clue as to where I could find their
archives or lists of congregants?
