Barbara - I never thought of that! That is a much more likely scenario since he came to sing in New York City synagogues but didn't intend to stay. So, like the game of telephone, whatever my grandfather heard as a child could have been misunderstood. Putting that together with what other people have shared about transatlantic routes and ships, I have a much clearer picture of the possibilities. Thanks, Hallie
