In appreciation: Sam Gorkofsky

I met Sam Gorkofsky about two years ago, when I began conducting interviews with descendants of the Russian Jewish families who had settled in the Ellsworth Hills above Sharon. Sam was 90 at the time, and he and his wife, Estelle, still lived on their farm straddling the Sharon-Amenia Road.
