Leon Bleckman, 83, and his sister, Roslyl Paster, were born in south Bronx and moved to Park Chester, Bronx several years later. At that time, ParkChester had seven synagogues. Today, seventy years later, there are only a few elderly Jews that live in the neighborhood. Leon and Roslyn no longer have a synagogue to pray in or celebrate holidays. However, thanks to Sheikh Musa of Masjid Al Amin, they now have a place. In what Leon describes as a miracle, they pray in a room inside the neighborhood mosque every Friday and Saturday. Yesterday, they had a Purim holiday celebration with the help of "Chabad" Ultra Orthodox.
