Stone Setting for baby twin brothers

October 17, 2008

A stone-setting was held for twin brothers who died in 1925, aged two months.

Maurice and Bernard Pearlman were found to be buried in Sandymount cemetery by their Hove-based sister, Freda Brisbar, after she was in contact with her cousin, Leonard Pearlman, who lives in Oregon.

Mr Pearlman contacted Harvey Kaplan at the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre who discovered where the twins were buried. Rev Aharon Soudry of Garnethill Synagogue said prayers for the twins at the service.
