Does anybody know whether congregation records exist for the former
Congregation Beth Israel, 238 Columbia St., Boston? It was founded in
1901, followed the Sephardic minhag, and was in the Cambridgeport
area. It started as the House of Israel Association.

My husband's great-grandparents were members there in the early 1900s.

So far, I have contacted the following congregations and no one has
the records: Temple Beth Shalom of Cambridge; Congregation Beth Israel
(Anshei Litte); Temple Israel; Beth Israel Malden; and Congregation
Beth Israel in Worcester.

Any ideas on how to proceed? Thanks for any information! Julie Miller
