???? shows a naturalization record for Solomon Shuman, tailor, born August 15, 1893, living @ 361 Washington St, Newton. The record states that he was born in Vilna> Russia. This Solomon was a "Litwak Jew" from what is Vilnius, Lithuania today.

There was a Jewish adage at the time: Litwak Jews are the brains and the Volynian Jews are the heart of the Russian Jewish Community.
