My former (at least on my part) pen pal Howard ???? ??? Goldstein wrote me that a letter from him appears in the current issue of Country Yossi.I am terribly curios but cannot lay my hands on one. Can someone please post the gist of his letter? Does he mention that he is a guest at the Clinton Hilton in Dannemora NY?November 16, 2010 5:28 pm at 5:28 pm #709694smartcookieMember

I just fished out that copy of C.Y There is a letter from Howard Goldstein. He writes of the Montreal Satmar community visiting a prison(via Winnebagos) on Yom Kippur.November 16, 2010 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #709697Shouldnt be hereMember
Does the OP mean to imply that Mr. Goldstein is a guest of NYS DOC ?November 16, 2010 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #709698bptParticipant
Dannemora no doubt has a Federal prison. Did’nt see the article but its just a guess.November 16, 2010 7:35 pm at 7:35 pm #709699
Yes I was referring to Clinton Correctional Facility a NYS maximum security prison.
Mr Goldstein with whom I was corresponding mentioned several times that had had visitors from Tosh (1/2 hour drive north of Montreal)
Montreal is the closest Yiddish yishuv to Dannemora which is about 1/2 hr from the Canadian border.
If he was writing as an eye witness it is very interesting. The jewih chaplain during the time of our correspondence was a Reform glegyman who went out of his way to be unhelpfulNovember 16, 2010 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #709701
