Updated through online information from Paul Marchesano. -- The organ was purchased and restored/renovated and installed in St. Paul's Roman Catholic Church in Philadelphia, PA. There is a link to the organ record in its new location. Sinai Temple of Mt. Vernon merged with Free Synagogue of Westchester and the merged congregation meets at the SFS building and location, no longer occupying or using the original 1926 building on Crary Avenue, currently occupied by Allen Memorial Church of God.
