JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Cong. Bnai Israel-Brooklyn, NY #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari

I am trying to verify and contact a Cong. Bnai Israel in Brooklyn
which at the early part of the 20th cent. was at the corner of Bedford
Ave and Hewes St. Researching the net I see that 3 cong.Bnai Israel
exist today in Brooklyn, but none at the above corner. There is one
several blocks >from Bedford Ave. but that doesn't assure that this is
the Congregation I am looking for.

I presume that the Bnai Israel I am searching was (is) an orthodox
shul. In 1918 they hired a Rabbi Jacob Dolgenas and I would like to
see a picture of this Rabbi.
