There is some dispute as to what my grandfather's Hebrew name
was. Cousins called him Benche -- with the "che" pronounced as in
"chest." I presume Benche is a nickname. But a nickname for what?
If it is relevant, he was born in Novogrudok, in northwest Minsk
gubernia, in 1896.
"Benche" or "Benchik" are usually pet names for Bentzion.
