JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>

With the arrival of Passover, I have collected some excerpts about
the holiday >from a number of JewishGen Yizkor books. >from the book
of Antopol in Belarus, a description of the preparations, >from the
cleaning of the house to the setting of the Seder table. >from Stryzow
in Poland, more on the gathering of the foods for the feast. >from
the book of Belki, once part of Hungary and Slovakia, and now in the
Ukraine, the search at the height of winter for the best ducks and
geese. >from Debica, Poland, the baking of matzah shmura. And again
from the book of Belki, a short passage about the religious ritual at
the Seder table.
