    • Rev. Dr. Gabriel Shulman, 86th Street Temple, 740 Lexington Ave., NY, now known as the Park Avenue Synagogue
      The Park Avenue Synagogue - Agudat Yesharim- is a Conservative congregation which was founded in 1882. From modest and humble beginnings, it has grown into one of the major congregations in the Conservative movement.
      In 1882, a group of German-speaking Jews founded a synagogue and named it Temple Gates of Hope. A church building at 115 East 86th Street was converted into a synagogue and soon the new synagogue was known as the Eighty-Sixth Street Temple. Some twelve years after its founding, the synagogue joined together with Congregation Agudat Yesharim. This was to be the Hebrew name of the congregation . The sermons in the congregation were still preached in German.
      Later amalgamations were to come. A nearby synagogue, the Seventy-Second Street Temple, was itself a product of the earlier merger of two congregations that had had their beginnings on the Lower East Side in the 1840's, Beth Israel and Bikkur Cholim. After their merger they moved uptown to Lexington Avenue and 72nd Street and in 1920 this congregation joined with the Eighty-Sixth Street Temple, Agudat Yesharim.
      In 1923 the Eighty-Sixth Street Temple petitioned the State of New York to have its name changed to the Park Avenue Synagogue, and three years later a new sanctuary was constructed on 87th Street, dedicated in March of 1927. This is our present sanctuary. In 1928 the last of the mergers took place when Atereth Israel, a congregation of Alsatian Jews who worshipped in their building on East 82nd Street, added their strength to the Park Avenue Synagogue.

      Edith was commissioned as a lieutenant in the Naval Reserve in October 1943 and was trained at the Naval Medical Center in Bethesda . She served at the WAVES training center at Hunter College in the Bronx. She supervised nurses who conducted the physical exams for incoming WAVES. My father also remembers that she escorted groups of WAVES to their next posts around the country, sometimes requiring long train trips.

      At the time of her induction into the Navy, Edith was medical supervisor of the New Rochelle NY public school system. She received a leave of absence in order to serve in the military. See http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~susanb/images/newspaper/edith_clippings.gif. Unfortunately I do not have the source of these two clippings. I had thought they were from the NY Times, but a search of the NYT archive does not retrieve them. They may have been from a New Rochelle newspaper. I have other clippings from the New Rochelle Standard Star and that seems like a good bet for these as well.

      She was promoted to lieutenant commander during the war .

      After her release from active duty, she continued to be active in the Naval Reserve. Her NY Times obit says that she was medical officer in a men's unit. My father and uncle remember that she attended weekly meetings, and generally stayed very active until her discharge from the reserve in 1956, when there was a retirement ceremony at Fort Schuyler.
