I'd like to express my gratitude publicly to Pamela for alerting us to this
amazing exhibit. My ancestors weren't rabbis but they came >from the town of
Kaluszyn and I have so many documents of theirs signed by the town's rabbi,
Szmul Kopel KLIGSBERG, that I almost feel I knew him. It was quite
fascinating for me to see a photo of the rabbi and put a face to the name!
All of you might care to note too that even if you don't have any rabbinical
ancestors, there is a lot of other information in this exhibit, including
the names of non-rabbinical relatives and brief histories of many towns.
Well worth checking out. Thanks again, Pamela.
All the best,
