When Middlewoods of Farmington resident Barry Gordon’s grandparents fled from Russia, a Russian priest who had befriended them gave them nun’s clothing for a safe escape. Other than that, the only things they took with them were candlesticks and wine cups as they sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to New York City. Not liking New York too much, his grandfather moved the family, including Barry’s mother and uncle, to Hartford. It was in Hartford in 1908 where his grandfather purchased a brass Menorah that has been passed down through the generations.
