I am a child of immigrants who came here in the early 1900’s. The Ash Family of McDonald ,and Pittsburgh. Growing up, I was taught to iss the Mezuzah upon entering the house and to put one on the door post, when I married, but women were not privileged to know the answer for doing this.

I hope some if your members remember those days.
Thank you again so much, I have shared it with many Ash and Browarsky
Relatives. Many have relatives as do I, remembered in a plaque in the
Carnegie Shul where I loved visiting for Shabbat services on my visits,
Which are now on hold due to Aging and the issues that come with it.
Celebrating The anniversary of Israel is wonderful, i have from handed down, from generation, a commemorative plate, which refers to “The Republic of
Israel, May 14,1948.
It is my Priceless Treasure.
