You might try "Kalisz" (pronounced "kah-leesh").

My grandmother, Gittel (ERLICH) KAGAN, referred to her home town in
Poland as "Chelish." I am trying to figure out where that might be. She
was born in 1900, and in 1914, the entire town was evacuated by the
Russians and sent to Penza, Russia. Can anyone guide me? I looked
through Shtelfinder, but couldn't decide if Czeladz would be right or
not.

Thank you,
