    i see it says “Ohel Torah” in Richmond – I have never heard of record of such a shul in Richmond, VA, maybe it means Staten Island (Richmond County) or Richmond Hill, Queens

    It is interesting because there was Keneseth Israel (now Keneseth Beth Israel) in Richmond, VA

    He definitely lived in NY. I’ll find out where this is located. He’s my great-grand father

    He was definetley first in Richmond VA as you can see from his work Divrie Harabanim which he authored together with a partner and printed in 1905 whicle in Richmond:

    As for Joe’s question, the way I would read the inscription would be that both Ohel Torah and Kneses Yisroel were congregations he served after he came over to NY.

    Where was your grandfather originally from? what else do you about him?
