While there are indices to all the surviving 1926 to 1903 Skierniewice records online in the
JRI-Poland database at:
JRI-Poland has recently created full extracts of the 1868 to 1917 records.  The latter are not
online as funds are still being raised to support the work on this project.  As with all Jewish
records of Poland, for more information, write to [townname]  In this case,

Hi Jeremy,

My family are from Rawa - my g-grandfather was Chaim Myer Przybysz from Rawa Mazowiecka, who married Freda Weinberg from Skiernewice. His eldest son Idel (born to him and Freda's older sister Gitel - a long story!) moved to London in 1906 and changed his name to Judah Beach (my great uncle). He was a major player in the association and I have found this article from the Jewish Chronicle in 1957 about a dinner which gives some further detail (and a very grainy picture). Maybe this was the occasion when your grandparents received their radio?

I did look into whether the records are kept anywhere but I don't think I found anything. Nevertheless I'll look again when I have a moment - and I'm happy to share any thoughts/resources on researching these two towns.

Best regards,

Richard Beach
