Re: Chuna #galicia

I know of several male Chune's. Beider's book lists Chuna/Chune
as derived >from Elkhonen (Hebrew for G-d is gracious).

So the answer seems to be "either".

I know of a male Chuna (Chuna Shukhat, a Jewish boy in Ukraine who died in
WWII). There was also a male Chone (Chone Shmeruk, a professor in Warsaw
who died in 1997).

With heartfelt gratitude for his many years of friendship and support,
it is with regret and sadness that JewishGen announces the resignation
of one of our long standing Board members. Bernie Kouchel will be
retiring >from the Board of Directors of JewishGen effective January 1,
2002.

For those of us who have had the pleasure to work with him, have had his
friendship and loyal support, have seen his spirit and energy throughout
the formative years of JewishGen, we will miss him dearly.

We hope you will join in honoring Bernie for all his achievements on
JewishGen's Wall of Honor for December,
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Honors.ihtml, for his 11
years of loyal and dedicated service to JewishGen, for his insights, his
vision, his leadership, his spirit and his creativity that has been a
hallmark for JewishGen today and will remain for future generations.

We wish him well in his retirement, we wish him health, peace and
happiness.

On this day, December 1, 2001, JewishGen has issued a formal
Proclamation,
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen/pr/KouchelProclamation.html, to
impart and share in his wonderful sense of humor. But more importantly,
we want to forever honor Bernie for his long term commitment and his
many contributions to this organization.

Exhibition #general

Daniel Teveles <melife@...>
 

Hi Genners
On November 29th an exhibition on "Tracing Jewish Settlement" opened in the
Palais De Glace in Buenos Aires. AGJA was there.
It was amazing because we went back about more that one hundred and ten
years .
You can see the historical trails of ours ancestors in differents provinces.
The hard labor of typical "Jewish Gauchos" was showed in this exhibition
thruough pictures filmes objets whose were got >from the inland.
Fortunatelly this was possible due to the hard work of honest group people
who did their best to show the importance of our past culture nowadays.
I think that this carry out activities that help to reconstruct the jewish
culture life is a personal challenge for all of us. I bought a book about
the colonization "Shalom Argentina" very recomended. By
Daniel Teveles
