BETH RADOM CONGREGATION PRESENTS

THE BETH RADOM MUSEUM

The Jews of Radom Poland, the Radomer Societies and the Beth Radom Congregation

For half a century, Jews emigrated from Europe and settled around the world.  Cities across the globe became home to waves of Radomers who honoured their roots by naming societies and sanctuaries in honour of their home town of Radom, Poland.   From Australia to North America, congregations boasting the name of Radom have fallen away leaving Toronto’s Beth Radom as the last remaining building to bear its name and host its memory.

in establishing the Beth Radom Museum our goal is to remember Jewish life in Radom, to trace the Radomers journey from Poland, around the globe, and to memorialize it as a physical tribute to their history.  This includes the birth of the Radomer Friendly Society, the Radomer Mutual Benefit Society, the Radomer Aid Society and other Radom organizations.

While various pieces of memorabilia dating back to the early 1900s are already displayed in the lower foyer of the Shul, the search continues for plaques, ledgers, photos, paperwork, hand written letters, booklets, flyers, old landing papers - anything related to life in Radom and their early lives as immigrants.

We are interested in all the Radom groups’ and individuals’ memorabilia. From Australia, New York, Montreal, Brazil, Israel, or other.  In addition to display items we are asking for funding streams, benefactors and patrons.  If you have items for this museum, suggestions or connections, we would love to hear from you..To arrange tributes or memorial naming rights, please contact me at 647-727-4455 or afryman@rogers.com

We look forward to hearing from you and sharing the memories.
