World War II Memorial

 

 

A plaque on the second level of the Sons of Jacob Synagogue honors the members of our congregation who served in World War II. A memorial to members who served in WWI is located on the lawn in front of the synagogue.

 

Although many of the names on this memorial, which had been cut from wood and glued to the plaque, have since fallen off, in 2014 a group of students from nearby Providence College volunteered their efforts to reconstructing the lost records and digitizing the complete list of congregation service members, as reproduced below.
