Some of my relatives left Ukrainia for Tashkent even before the war, because
allegedly there was less chance there of being caught up in a Stalinist purge.

celebration and mourning #general

David and Bonnie Altman <altman@...>
 

[David and Bonnie Altman] Neither weddings or Britot would be cancelled.
Both are mitzvoth d'oreita (commandments proscribed by the Torah). A Brit
is only postponed if the baby boy himself is ill. If, however, the baby
had been ill and had not had his Brit on the eighth day, then the Brit
would probably be postponed until after Shivah, or the Brit would be held
and the mourner/s would have to eat the Brit meal at home.

A friend of mine buried her father on Purim, so there was no eulogy. The
Purim meal was set up in her home, and she was still required to send out
mishloach manot and charity money, she just wasn't allowed to leave the
home after the meal. The rabbis instructed her to eat the Purim meal as
close to sunset as possible. She said it was one of the strangest
experiences she ever had, but her father had loved Purim, so it somehow
seemed suitable that he should die then. He was modest and did not want
to be eulogized in any case.

Translation of Rabbi Yehudah Kolonimus poem #general

Lora Hull <lorabelle@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am trying to find information about Rabbi Yehudah Kolonimus and am hoping
someone can help to translate his poem, "I Call Upon Mourning" or point me
in the direction for an official translation of it.
The poem can be seen on Viewmate, VM1564, at the following URL:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1564.html

This poem is taken >from the Rokitno Yizkor book, "Rokitno (Volin)
ve-ha-seviva; sefer edut ve-zikaron", "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings;
Memorial Book and Testimony". Ala and Larry Gamulka, the wonderful people
who have been dilligently translating this book, are stuck on this poem as
it was written around the 11th or 12th century in an older Hebrew
(it is not in Aramaic as stated on the viewmate description).

I would appreciate any information you have about Rabbi Yehudah or the poem.

Please respond directly to me.
Thanks so much!

The perils of research #general

JSelig3460@...
 

Genners:

I jumped the gun on my study of the Swislotcher Brotherhood Association and
again
found the stubs of the receipts given for the allocation of graves. It began
in the spring of 1919 and I noted the death of many children and young people
for this time way out of the ordinary for the size of the membership. If it
were coincidence, it was a fantastic occurence. It occured to me that this
was the period of the world-wide flu epidemic.

My psyche has learned to deal with pogroms and the SS death squads following
the German army into Belarus and slaughtering the Jewish population prior to
the systematic holocaust procedures which have been so well documented. Right
now I have to deal with a worldwide epidemic and how the New York
Swislotchers must have dealt with it. I trust that my psyche will make the
necessary adjustments.

Re: information from synagogues #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

Unfortunately what you say is all too true. Many shuls were run by
volunteers who kept the records at home. My late father was the treasurer of
his shul for many years and kept the records at home, until someone else
took over and the records were transferred to him. It is not only in
synagogues that this occurs. I did my dissertation on Columbian Council of
Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh section of the National Council of Jewish Women.
Trying to reconstruct the early years was very difficult. I was told that
the secretary kept the minutes at home and after she died no one really knew
where they were. I had to use newspaper accounts of meetings for my data.
While trying to track down the names of the charter members of Hadassah,
founded in 1912, the archivist of Hadassah sent me all the materials she had
available, and the only accounts were recollections of members fifty or more
years later.

Subject: information >from synagogues
Dear friends,

It seems to me that the records of our Synagogues, where we live the
landmarks of our lives, should contain a wealth of information. Since
notices are sent out for Yarzeit, I would think that the names of parents,
siblings, and others, many of whom died and have been lost to memory in the
old country, would be included.

A few years ago, I contacted the large Conservative Synagogue in Providence,
Rhode Island, of which my grandfather was a founder, hoping to find the date
of death of his father. I was told that no such records existed. Only a
note of a loan >from my grandfather, and a one line mention of my grandmother
as the founding President of the Sisterhood. And this >from a long lifetime
of involvement. I'm wondering if anyone else has experience or thoughts on
the subject.

On a related note, can anyone say what's happened to the records of the many
now defunct Synagogues of New York? My great grandparent's Shul, on
Rochester Avenue in Brooklyn, has become an African American church. Are
these records destroyed, absorbed by other congregations, kept by private
members of the congregation, have they found their way to Yivo or the New
York Public Library, or some combination of the above?

I seldom hear of Synagogues in the new world as a source of genealogical
information. I would think there'd be a bevy of information to mine here.

best,

Robert Corwin
