Notes & Sources ( returns to text above)

  • (i) Jewish Year Books for 2011 and 2012.

  • (ii) 47 Moundfield Road, was the address of the Halaser Birkath Yehuda Beth Hamedras, according to Jewish Year Books up to 2010, after which the Gur (Avreichium) congregation ceases to be listed. It is probable that the Congregation acquired the premises from the defunct Gur (Avreichium) congregation, rather than there having been a change of name of the Congregation.

  • (iii) The Congregation first appears as a separate congregation in the Jewish Year Book for 2011.

  • (iv) Named as Rabbi of the Congregation in Jewish Year Books from 2011 until at least 2013, although later Jewish Year Books may also name him as the Rabbi. Rabbi B.L. Rabinowitz was shown as rabbi of Biala Chelkas Yehoshua Beth Hemedrash until 2010.
