Dear List,
In answer to Michelle Franger's posting:

Maybe this has to do with the (preferred) Sephardic pronunciation of Hebrew?
My family background is Ashkenazi on both sides, (southwestern Podolia
around Kamenets-Podolsk) but when I was a child in New York in the 1940s my
father insisted on our attending a Sephardi synagogue and Hebrew school to
retain the Hebrew pronunciation as spoken in Israel.

Does anyone know if there were Sephardim, or Sephard-descended
families in southwestern Podolia? Apparently my family used a
Sephardic prayer book in Snitkov at least around 1900 to WW I years.
