Larry Weiss' D'var on New Bern History

 

This is the time of year when New Bern becomes fascinated by its past. Last week it was Ghost Walk, with hundreds of people walking through the streets of our fair city in search of ghosts and spirits from our past. This weekend of course brings Halloween, when our fascination with the spirit world comes to the fore. We all know that Halloween is not a Jewish holiday, and as such it would not normally be the subject of a Dvar Torah.

And truth be told I will not really be speaking about Halloween per say tonight. However the fascination with spirits and ghosts at this time of year, combined with the publication of a new volume of New Bern history by the Historical Society reminded me that our city was blessed for many years with a thriving community of Jewish merchants located on the 200 block of Middle Street, between Front and Pollock Streets, back in the days when downtown New Bern was the retail center for our entire eastern region including Jones and Carteret Counties.
