Thought I'd add my contribution to the "clustering discussion". For
some time now I have attempted to track down the Podzelva
(Zelva)-Cleveland connection that my grandmother (who lived in Brockton,
MA) mentioned in her memoir. She mentioned a 'Podzelver Shul' in
Cleveland and sure enough it definitely existed. It seems like a large
percentage of those who left Podzelva settled in Cleveland. Apparently
the 'Podzelver Shul' merged with the Taylor Road Synagogue of Cleveland.
I would like to hear >from anyone familiar with this Podzelver Shul.
Also I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me if anyone has documented
the Jewish history of Brockton, MA.
