The Jewish community in North Adams, MA was small. Most likely, if your relatives were part of it, they may have married one of my relatives or at least knew them. Let's share info. I have lots of info on the Jewish community in North Adams (especially the surnames listed above) and also the Jewish cemetery.

My aunt ( Bertha Skole) co-authored a book "Jews in Berkshire County" in 1972. The Pittsfield library I am sure has a copy and I have a copy so I would be happy to pass any info on.

my husband found that book for me in a second hand store in Jerusalem many years ago. My family were the Kronicks, Potashnicks and the Jacobs.

I am familiar with the name of the Lev family. My cousins lived there a lot longer than I did and would know more. I can put you in touch with them.
