My Paternal Great Grandmother was Ray Kaplan married to Nathan Bender (Bendetowicz) of Wolkowitz now Vaukoviysk, Belarus. Her family was associated with the Forming and teaching at the famous Bialystok Gymnasium. Supposedly, one of the Kaplan teachers was a favorite among the students including Yitzhak Shamir. My Dad's cousin Harold Goldray attended the reunion. I haven't been able to find records of the Kaplans in Poland, They may not have been born there. I don't know if we were related to all of them? There is also supposed to be a famous Rabbi in the family. I have a photo from the Reunion with Harold Goldray, Yitzhak Shamir, and others that helped form the State of Israel. Ray and Nathan supposedly had 18 children and they all lived! If there are any descendants or if anyone else has info on the Teachers & founders
