Bob:  The Jewish Heritage Center, American Ancestors (New England Historic Genealogical Society) has, among its holdings, a number of archival synagogue records.  Included is a synagogue from Gardner, MA, Cong. Ohave Sholom.

Hi Ellen and Carol,

Thanks for your inputs.  The jgsgb site has good information.  It has a history of Jews in Massachusetts that elaborates on Ellen's comment.  It also cites the book Water Street by Norma Feingold.  I requested it from my library.

The synagogue list is useful because it points to where records may now exist.  I hope not too much has changed since it was published.  Athol does have a synagogue going back to the 1920's and I contacted them already.

Once again, many thanks for the leads,
