My only remembrance relates to my visits to the shul with my
grandfather. He would stay with us on occasion, and in those
instances he would take me to Sabbath services where he had me up on
bimah to take part in the Kiddish ritual. This was some
adventure for a young one. I don't think I was so much impressed by
the riligiosity of the moment as I was with the opportunity of sipping
the wine and taking part in the oneg shabbat that followed.
I remember going there as a child but that was about it. They still have a section of plots at Beth David Cemetery located on Elmont Road, Elmont, Long Island.
