We were sitting at lunch today and a woman in our group came over to our table and said that she and her sister found several silver kiddish cups and a silver Yad ( pointer that touches the Torah when reading ) that were made by her grandfather in Lithuania pre war. How did she know this? The insignia was stamped into the silver with the number 84 and was familiar with the exact design. She had a feeling to go into this particular antique store. Take a guess their family name? Silverman.
