The Free Synagogue of Flushing will Celebrate its 100th Anniversary in 2017
For the second year in a row the Free Synagogue of Flushing is opening its doors to everyone for high holy day services. It is sad that so many synagogues in Queens have closed over the years as the Jewish population has declined. Karen, Lee and I attended services there yesterday. They announced that they will be observing their 100th anniversary next year. I would think that back then Flushing was rural.
From 1978-81 Queens B'nai B'rith singles held its monthly meetings at the Free Synagogue. I described my days in that group in this journal entry written in 2008.
