Re: Search of Kamenetsky's from Bessarabia #bessarabia

In the 1950s, we spent happy summers with our grandparents at a bungalow colony in the Catskills (Kiamesha Lake, just down the road from the Concord Hotel) which was run by a wonderful woman, perhaps in her 70s? 80s?, we knew as “Mrs. Kaminetsky”.

There was a large shared kitchen in the main building, where Mrs. Kaminetsky prepared challah; an ice cold grey cement pool under what must have been a natural stream a short walk back through what I recall as “woods”, where we went blueberry picking for baking.

(As far as I remember being told eventually the nearby Raleigh Hotel bought the property and demolished the buildings)

Does anyone have more information about “Kaminetsky’s” or Mrs. Kaminetsky?
