Louisville's Jewish Community
Mr. Russman remembers growing up in an observant Jewish home. They lived on Chestnut Street, where personal poverty went unrecognized. He discusses early childhood friends. He recalls Jewish Bread Man; Rabbi Zarchy's funeral; being drafted in the second group at 18 years of age; World War II; active Zionists; the 1937 flood and a lack of Kosher meat.
