I'm not sure now when YIVO will reopen and more importantly if I will
be able to get there in the near future. For me, it will probably be
after the fall holidays.

However, the FHL [Mormon Family History Library] has on microfiche the
catalog of the YIVO holdings and, >from what I could see of the
description, the catalog is in English. It takes a little while for it
to arrive (I'm still waiting after a month), but it should be easy to
find out whether this congregation is listed.

Someone in my group has a hard copy of the pamphlet, so I suspect it's
not too hard to get >from YIVO.
