Golden Oldies Our president, Jaime Siegel, is in possession of a collection of old photos relating to Temple Israel. Over time, we will be publishing them in the bulletin and on this website. Please scroll down this page to view all of the photos.
This photo features the Browns, one of the founding families of Temple Israel. It was taken at their home in East Quogue around 1909. Left to right are Mary (b.1898), Sarah Sacks Brown (b.1870), Simon (b. 1896), Max (b. 1868) and Fannie (b. 1900). Mary married Louis Frank in 1917. Fannie married Morris Harding in 1922. The big round window above the bimah is named for the Hardings, and there is a window in the classroom for Max and Sarah Brown. This photo was shared by Joel Glasser, a great grand-child.
This photo features George Sandberg and  Alice Resnikoff Howard, with Rabbi  Resnikoff’s wife behind the stroller. This photo is of the Confirmation class of 1944-1945.   Pictured from left to right are: Alvin Sandberg, Marty Wolborsky, Oliver Twersky and Carl Sandberg.  Thank you to Shep and Stan Hagler for identifying those pictured.
