Moving Frequently Among Ukraine Towns #ukraine


Herbert Lazerow
 

   Some Jews in that part of Galicia were shenkers.  They ran inns or taverns and, under lease from the local noble, had a monopoly of the making and selling of alcoholic beverages. It was common for these leases to be for the calendar year. The shenker might choose to move to another town because he received better lease terms there, or because the noble refused to renew the lease. Given what the weather was like at that time of year, there was a strong disincentive to move in the 19th century, that was often overcome by either opportunity or necessity.
