Re: Orphanage in Newark, NJ 1943 #usa #france


My mother was employed at the Jewish Children’s Home (also known as the Hebrew Orphan’s Assylum) at 534 Clinton Ave., in Newark in the early 1930’s. The Home sheltered both girls and boys. My mother was in charge of the girls. While working there she met my father who was a volunteer leader of the Home’s Boy Scout Troop.  They married in 1935, thus ending my mother’s employment at the Home.  Photos of the Home may be seen at:
Evidently the Home existed into the 1950’s.  See information at:
