The information contained within these pages was curated with the help of long-time friend, Ruth Siegel. Ruth's husband, Mark Widome, served as "staff photographer" and took most of our photos. Thanks to all the friends and relatives who also helped along the way.
Growing up in the Jewish community of Lewistown, PA was a wonderful and unforgettable experience for those of us who spent our formative years in the town, which though small, had a thriving congregation.
I have long wanted to put Lewistown's Jewish community "back on the Jewish world map." To that end, I created this site and contacted Jewishgen to serve as its host.
