Rousso/Russo Family of Monastir and New York This section dedicated to the descendants of Yahoud Rousso, born in 1863.
This family emigrated to the United States under the influence of the late Leon Kamhi, and entered the ladies' sportswear business. In time one of the firms they founded became Russ Togs, possibly the only Monastirli-owned and operated company ever to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
Many members of this family have been prominent in Monastirli affairs in the New York area for decades; including the Monastirli society, the Sephardic Temple in Cedarhurst, and the Sephardic Old Age Home in Brooklyn.
There are so many wonderful and fascinating stories linked to all these families. ... For me the excitement is about tracing the talents and abilities that permeate my family. To discover that my great grandfather made the braids that adorned the uniforms of the Turkish army and that my father taught himself to design and make skirts and taught his brothers, leading to the great success of the Roussos on 7th Ave. I have been blessed with artistic talents, as have so many of my family members. I have always strived to make the most of them as I feel it is my obligation to honor my predecessors and pass it on.
