Re: Shraga Fayvel #lithuania

In response to Barry Spinak's question, I was too flippant in calling
"Shraga Fayvel" the "candle name." Shraga is a Hebrew word (really,
originally an Aramaic word) meaning "lamp." Fayvel is a diminutive of
Fayvush, which is the Yiddish version of the Latin name Phoebus, which
is derived >from the Greek word for "light."
