Nebraska Jewish Cemeteries #belarus

Kenneth H. Ryesky, Esq. <khresq@...>
 

Marc Schwartz made inquiry regarding Jewish cemeteries in Lincoln,
Nebraska.

I would suggest that he try to contact the
Nebraska Jewish Historical Society,
333 South 132nd Street,
Omaha,
NE 68154
(telephone 402/334-6441 or 6442).

The following at one time was a valid e-mail address: njhs@radiks.net.
Perhaps it still is working.

YABKOWSKY and GAVOLI in Haifa #general

Tamar Gold <trgold@...>
 

I was just given the names of two families of "cousins" in Haifa. the
information I have for them is about 30 years old. Does anyone recognize
either of these families? Can someone is Israel look up these names in
Haifa? Their full names are Moony and Chana YABKOWSKY and Tova and Yosef
GAVOLI. The GAVOLI family used to be at >>> SNIP Haifa. I have (old)
telephone numbers for each one, but I would rather just use them as a
last resort. I am looking for correct addresses. These people would be
about 60-80 years old. Thanks for your help everyone!

No, not in a yeshiva context!

The position of the mashgiach is central in classical yeshivot, possibly
even more so than the yeshiva head (Rosh Yeshiva). Whereas the Rosh Yeshiva
is responsible for the academic side of the studies, the Mashgiach is
responsible for the spiritual wellbeing of the students. He will discuss
spiritual and moral issues with small groups of students (Va'ad) and will
generally be available for any student to turn to in case of his having
any problems. Many mashgichim have a fine understanding of psychology,
and will be able to spot any potentially serious problems with students
and (at least in recent times) know to whom the student should be
referred if any treatment is required (this is information I have been
given by an Orthodox psychiatrist, who often had students referred to
him by various mashgichim). The mashgiach will try to ensure that all
of the students are relaxed and happy in the yeshiva environment, and will
deal with any problems such as room sharing when required. Many well known
mashgichim published collections of their moral and ethical essays.

The LDS (IGI) reference @RO1@ provided me with the following information:

Isac DELVALLE male child, christened 21 April 1633 Threadneedle Street
French Huguenot, London,London
His parents are Abraham DELVALLE and Simone.
I am not a specialist of this question. All I can tell you is that a
Delvalle or Delvaille Portuguese family lived in Bordeaux and Bayonne at
this time and that in these towns also lived a huguenot population. It is
also clear that French marranos had a lot of contacts with Amsterdam and
London.

An other information that can be of some interest for all the group : In
CARAN (French National Archives) there is a microfilm (296 Mi* 1 and 2)
"Archives of the French Protestant Chuch in London (Huguenot French
Community in London, 1681-1758)".
I don't know if it can help.

Re: MORRIS in Oudtshoorn, BLANKFIELD in Kroonstad, Jhb #southafrica

Brest Family <angi@...>
 

*Goeie More julle* (good morning everyone),

There are Blankfields buried in the Braamfontein cemetery in Johannesburg
and I knew a fellow once very vaguely by the name of Billy Blankfield. I
cannot tell you any more than that, but just to let Robyn Lichter know that
there were Blankfields in Johannesburg. The Braamfontein Cemetery dates
from 1892 to 1921 (apart >from a few exceptions where people were buried next
to their loved ones up until 1999, but very few). I don't have any record
of any Blankfield Graves, and Braamfontein cemetery is not a safe place for
someone to go and start researching graves, unless there is a crowd of
people going to do research.

Tot siens (goodbye)

Can someone please tell me what the contemporary name of this place would
be and how to find it? The usual tools "shtetl finder, various maps,
FEEFHS and so on didn't help. It was in Upper Silesia and I can't find it
on a map.
