John Zucker served as a rabbi for a reform congregation in Reno, Nev., and while he was there, he performed many marriages. After he left Reno, in 1947, he became the rabbi of San Leandro's Beth Sholom. When Zucker was no longer rabbi at Beth Sholom, an individual found the marriage licenses in a desk that Zucker had used.
