From the pomp of Mordecai Manuel Noah’saddress declaring nearby Grand Island a refuge for oppressed foreign Jews, to the first home of Temple Beth El on Pearl Street, the downtown area has been home to Jewish agencies and Jewish businesses including LL Berger and many smaller retailers, some of whom relocated to other parts of the city or the suburbs.
