My father and Mother for many years operated Elsters Fruit Market at 1368 Hertel, corner of Saranac, about 100 feet from Anshe Zedek.
We were a family of nine: our parents, five sisters, and my brother and I.
I left Buffalo in 1960, and maintained my subscription to the weekly edition for virtually the entire time since. I have lived in Los Angeles since 1968.
