Notes & Sources
( returns to text above)

  • (i) Reserved.

  • (ii) This was the address listed in Jewish Year Books from 1927 through 1957, and was also the address of the home during the same period.

  • (iii) The congregation was first listed in the Jewish Year Book 1927 which is consistent with the 1926 date of establishment of the Home.

  • (iv) Based upon the Congregation's final listing in the Jewish Year Book 1957, which was also the last year in which the Home's listed address was at 22 Park Road.

  • (v) to (vii) Reserved.

  • (viii) Extracted from listings in Jewish Year Books. It has been assumed that his term of office commenced in the year prior to the title year of the year book in which such officer is first listed and continues until the title year of the year book in which such officer is last listed. However, it should be noted that this is only an assumption and, accordingly, the actual years of office may differ somewhat from those shown here.

  • (ix) Jewish Year Books were not published  during the war years from 1941 to 1945. However as A.E. Levine was listed as chairman (of the religious services committee), and Miss Davis as secretary, for several years until the cessation of publication (both since the 1938 edition) and for several years after the resumption of publication (until the congregation's closure), it is assume that they also served in such positions during the war years.
