Re: List of Rabbis in New York Area mid 1800's #records

I would like to thank everyone for all of their great suggestions, I would not have been able to find the information if it was not for your help. 

It turns out the Rabbi was Louis Miller, age 25, Immigrated to the US in 1886, the same year as the wedding. He is listed in the 1900 census as a piano teacher. For those of you interested in him here is his Family Search page https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MSJ2-VNF

The Synagogue or more likely an Aid Society was Rodfe Zedek Anshe Retove  , 225 East Broadway, New York 10002, found at Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute, New York Historical Synagogue Map. I'm sure this is the right one, since much of my family came from Rietavas (Lithuania). https://genealogy.cjh.org/synagogue-map?inputtext=rietavas&searchtype=words&Search=Search 

I learned so much about searching street addresses, my eyes are a little crossed but glad I found something. He is listed in Enumeration District (ED) 70 in New York. I used Stephen Morse, One-Step Census to find it. 

I'm hoping to connect more of my family to this Synagogue, yes the search goes on. Thank you again.
