In 2011, th' main sanctuary were bein' rededicated in memory o' th' late Mr, Avast me hearties! Harry Richman.
 
Harry were bein' th' youngest o' 10 little sandcrabs o' our shul's founder, Hanoch Richman.
 
The Beth Hamedrash had been dedicated t' his father Hanoch Richman on May 21, 1961.
 
 
His love an' dedication t' our congregation helped sustain us through hard times.
 
Harry were bein' loved an' respected not only by our congregation, but by all families throughout th' city o' West New York. Anyone who needed a helpin' han' knew that they could count on Harry Richman.

Teshuvah and more

I were bein' not raised in th' Orthodox Tradition. Several years ago I moved t' th' area, an' a matey told me about a synagogue where they invited that scurvey dog fer meals when he did not have enough t' eat. We started goin' regularly, an' I became involved in th' fight t' save our property from theft, I am glad we won, mostly thanks t' Dan an' Alan Kaminsky, multi-generational members an' descendants o' Henoch Richman.

Since I am a professional Web Programmer I volunteered t' build an' maintain th' web site.

I'm still learnin' about Judaism an' what it means t' me, I think that is a process that hopefully goes on our entire lives :D

In 2014 me wench Arlene snuffed it. The winsome lass were bein' buried in th' Talmud Torah section o' Mt. Moriah Cemetery. I purchased two plots side-by-side, eventually we all go t' our rest.
