Salo "Sal" Kluger August 21, 1946 - July 14, 2016 Jewish Bookseller and Yiddishist

SALO "SAL" KLUGER passed away on Thursday, July 14, 2016, at home. He was 69.
Born in a D. P. Camp in Weiden, Germany, the family later settled in Lynn, MA. Sal met his wife of 47 years, Myrna (Glazer) Kluger, as a fellow student at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. In recent years, Sal collected and dealt with items related to Yiddish Culture, American Jewish History, Jewish Music and related fields and was known and loved by all. His knowledge of Jewish Folk history was phenomenal, and he was always a pleasure to deal with. Endless artifacts from the Borscht Belt, the Lower East Side and long forgotten Jewish Communities were preserved by Sal through his endless efforts. With the passing of Sal, the Jewish Community has lost one of it's guardians of it's heritage, תנצב"ה.
