The sign outside reads "Lit-
tle Russia." Inside, a variety
of merchandise is on display
—silk scarves, crafts, jewelry,
samovars. And, as owners
Victoria and Nathan Schiller
explain, every item was
brought to America by Rus-
sian Jewish immigrants.
"We have very close rela-
tions with them," Victoria
Schiller says. "We even write
to them about what we need,
and they bring us special
merchandise that we can sell
here?'
This system not only helps
provide Cambridge customers
with unusual Russian-made
speciality items, but it also
helps the immigrants. They
can only convert a very small
number of rubles into dollars
and are in need of cash.
Bringing goods instead allows
them to exchange goods for
American dollars.
And they've brought a wide
and unusual range of wares to
the cheerful Cambridge shop.
One display case is full of
Russian crafts, including
figurines carved from
soapstone; hand-painted
wooden nesting dolls, one in-
side the other; a chess set
with the figures in regional
Russian dresses; and novelty
toys like the bear playing a
piano.
The Schillers came here in
1973 from Moscow, and open-
ed "Little Russia" three years
later. At the time, Victoria
Schiller was teaching
linguistics at Harvard; but
after ten yeas of teaching, she
left the college classroom to
become a partner with her
husband in their business,
which now includes another
store in nearby Brookline.
Both stores draw diverse
patrons, mostly Jewish, and
many of Russian descent. "In
America everyone is thinking
about their roots!' Victoria
Schiller says. "And all this" —
she points to the display case
— "reminds them of those
roots?'
Halfway between Harvard
and Cambridge is another
site of interest to Jewish
travelers. Temple Beth
Shalom, a modest building on
Tremont Street, is better
known as the Tremont Street
shul.
Built in 1924 for Temple
Ashkenaz congregation, it's
now headquarters for the ci-
ty's one remaining congrega-
tion, one which has shown im-
pressive growth in the past
two years.
Outside, there's a newly
landscaped garden enclosed
by a colorful tile wall, with
the tiles depicting sites
related to the city's Jewish
history. "We commissioned
Jewish artists to do the tiles,"
