I am forwarding this message from Anne Knafl. She posted the message on the Association of Jewish Libraries discussion group (Hasafran).
There is a Yiddish Leksion article about Frid Vayninger on the web at 
http://yleksikon.blogspot.com/2016/05/frid-vayninger-freed-weininger.html

It says he was born in Czernowitz, Bukovina 29 July 1915 and died in Israel 4 Dec 1988.
He lived for some time in New York, received a Masters degree in psychiatric social work from Wayne State University in Detroit, made aliya to Israel in 1968.
Read the 2 comments at the end of the Yiddish Leksikon web page (URL above).

There was a book of poems published in Israel under a name that may be a relative:
Fridman, Yaakov. Lifer un poemes Vol. 2. Yisroel, 1974. Mck PJ 5129.F78 L53 1974 vol.2 
and another book published in Israel under the name
Vayninger, Frid. Oysies-verter-strofn. Tel-Aviv, 1981. Mck PJ 5129.W396 O94 1981

There is a picture of Michael Vayninger, a  student who attended the UWM (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee) Math Circle.

Subject: [ha-Safran] reference question: genealogy

I am looking for the heirs of a certain Yiddish poet (Frid Vayninger) but have run into a brick wall. The closest thing to information I have is that he may or may not have family remaining in Kiryat Tivon.
Thanks in advance,
Anne
