Society Gates

Rajgrod
POLAND

 

  SHERAS ISRAEL ANSHE RAJGROD
at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY
date of establishment unknown

There are no names inscribed on these gate posts.




 
  RAJGROD LODGE I.O.B.A. NO. 334
(EAST NEW YORK PROGRESSIVE SOCIETY, INC. ON METAL GATE)
at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY
date of establishment unknown

The names on these gate posts are very eroded, but perhaps they can be distinguished with high magnification and careful observation. It should be noted, however, that since the society name on the gate is the East New York (Brooklyn) society, odds are the names on the posts are from that society and not from the Rajgrod one, which must either owned the plot at one time or shared space with one or more other societies.
