Re: Overview: Congregation Linas Hazedek

The last rabbi of this synagogue was Rabbi Lippe Solomon, a student at the world-renowned Radin yeshiva in Poland. He became rabbi shortly after the end of World War II, and remained as rabbi until 1969, when the synagogue closed down, and he moved with his family to Brighton. Rabbi Solomon joined Congregation Chai Odom in Brighton, another former Dorchester synagogue. He was so much respected and honored in Brighton that he was given the honor of sitting next to the rabbi at Congregation Chai Odom. Rabbi Solomon remained in Brighton until he moved with his wife to Lakewood, NJ in 2002 to live near his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
