Dear Paulette:


Belatedly, I am responding to the Foundation's solicitation of September 3, 2015.


I am originally from Scranton but I now live in Charlotte. My family on my mother's side is all from the Frackville, Shenandoah, and Mahanoy City area. In Kehillat Israel Cemetery in Shenandoah, we have graves for Meyer Lipkin (Section C, Row E, Lot 24, Position L),

Isadore and Mollie Lipkin (Section C, Row C, Lot 16) and Samuel and Marjorie Lipkin (Section

B, Row C, Lot 3).



I was at the cemetery recently and I took a picture of the gravestone of Meyer Lipkin. It is all in Hebrew. I had it translated and on the gravestone are noted Meyer Lipkin's date of birth-May 2, 1907 and his date of death-June 2, 1928. I don't think you have that information in the cemetery records or on line and I would appreciate you making the addition.


As I noted, I was at the Shenandoah cemetery recently. The cemetery is as beautiful and peaceful and fitting as ever. Kudos to the Jewish Community Foundation of Central Pennsylvania for taking up the responsibility for this cemetery. My contribution is enclosed.


Question: Which other cemeteries have become the responsibility of the Foundation?






P.S. The location of the lots referred to above is based on my understanding of how the cemetery is subdivided. It may not be correct.

I trust that our law based qualities are additionally conceived out of our Jewish confidence, an 'affection for the outsider, and equity under the steady gaze of the law - these are not remote qualities: this is Judaism. Generally, I originate from Jewish history. I had a great childhood in the Yeshiva, getting the hang of, learning, and all the more learning.
