Jewish Oral Histories: Rabbi Sidney Berkowitz

Rabbi Sidney Berkowitz led Youngstown’s Congregation Rodef Sholom, a Reform temple on the Northside, for almost 40 years, starting in 1946.  After his death, an oral history project invited members of the Congregation and the local community to share their memories.
