Re: Hebrew Reformatory, Plainview NY Early 1900's #usa
1. If your family members were present in an orphanage in 1920 they should be in the 1920 US census. If present in 1925 there is a NY State census.
2. Have you looked at this site? If you search there for HNOH (Hebrew National Orphans Home) It includes a list of several such institutions in NY.
You can also search that site for "Orphanages."

This intrigued me -- I've been looking for a Jewish orphanage on Long Island without any success (for my grandfather and his brother, around 1922 for a year or two), and someone had also mentioned Pleasantville to me at one point, but as a children's home, not a reformatiory.
