I grew up not too far >from Brockton (canton) and today there is a
substantial Jewish community there. Brockton was an old shoe factory town
that has fallen upon hard times in recent years due to an influx of low
income families and the closing of the factories.

There are 3 synagogues in Brockton today. The numbers are listed below.

Agudas Achim - 508/583 0717
Beth Emunah 508/583 5810
Temple Israel 508/587 4130

I would suggest calling and searching the archives of the Jewish Advocate,
the dominant jewish paper in Boston.

Good Luck
