I would like some information on R' Yitzchok ABOHAV, mechaber
(author) of the Menoras Hamaor. Would there happen to be an
English translation of this tremendous and fascinating work?
Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This very interesting work was translated several years ago by Rabbi
Joseph Reinman and Published by CIS Publishers in Lakewood, New
Jersey.

I've even noticed copies at several libraries.

In addition, an organization, as part of it fundraising program,
arranged for partial excepts of the translation and used them in
mass mailings.

Rabbi Reinman mentions in the introduction that Rabbi Abohav
prepared sermon notes and the result was this extraordinary sefer.

Re: Alexander #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

The question is:

"The first name Alexander (usually in the Yiddish form of Sender,
after Alexander the Great, is not an uncommon Jewish first name.
Alexander lived in the 4th century BCE, before the division in the
Jewish world between Ashkenazim and Sephardim, yet, as far as I
know the name is only used by Ashkenazim. Can anyone explain this?"

Alexander was often a name used to refer to the 'good Czar' Alexander,
who was assassinated n 1881. That is why 1881 is the date of the
start of the big increase in Jewish emigration >from Russia. Alexander
was much kinder to the Jews than those before or after him-but was
not what we would call kind.

Descendants of Meshulem and Ayreh KRONMAN from Zdunska Wola #general

Martin Kronman <mkronman@...>
 

I am interested in contacting any descendants of Meshulem and
Ayreh KRONMAN. The latter were born in Zdunska Wola in 1897
and in 1909, respectively. Their parents were Benjamin KRONMAN
and Fayge MIKELSON who were married in 1894 in Zdunska Wola. The
Yizkor Book for Zdunska Wola, published in 1968, showed the
Meshulem died in Israel after WWII, his wife and children having
died during the war. It is not known if Meshulem married again
in Israel and had children there.

The Social Security index of deaths showed that Aryeh, or as we
was known in the US as Harry, died in 1997 in New York City. His
application for a Social Security account was dated June, 1947,
showing that he was living in the United States at that time. At
that time he lived in Brooklyn, NY. It is not clear as to whether
he came to the United States Europe before WWII or afterwards,
perhaps via Israel. I have been unable to determine if he married
in the United States and had children.

I would greatly appreciated hearing >from anyone who knew of Harry
(Ayreh) and Meshulem KRONMAN and their descendants. Any suggestions
about a source for such information would also be welcome.

Locating Israeli telephone listings #general

Jeff Blustein
 

Occasionally I've helped genners look up phone listings in Israel,
but it's something anyone who is familiar with the Hebrew alphabet
can do. The site www.144.bezeq.com opens with brief instructions
in Hebrew. There's a typewriter bar in the lower left of the screen
where you can input the surname, first name, street and town. It
also has a helpful soundex feature that's built in. If you're not
sure what area of the country set the area to 00- the entire country,
and set it to return 20 listings per screen. This site has helped me
locate quite a few relatives. Gamar tov to you all

Post Card From Warsaw #poland

SBernst579@...
 

--part1_72.22376ac8.2aae88cd_boundary
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

I would appreciate if anyone could help translate the Yiddish written on a
post card which was sent to my grandmother, Mary Bernstein in Chicago, sent
by her brother in Warsaw. I assume that it was written prewar. The reverse of
the post card has an interesting group photo of men in which they appear to
be a social organization.

Unfortunately, a portion of the post card is torn away and mission. The
brother's name would be either Manasha or Moishe. Mary's maiden name was
Karcewer/Karchover, and her family was >from Warka, Poland.

The post card can be found a the View Mate Site
(http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/) file # VM1767
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

JRI-Poland urgently needs used lap-top (notebook) computers #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends:

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland needs laptop computers
to help us in our indexing projects and data checking work
in Poland.

If you have upgraded recently and have an old laptop,
please let us hear >from you.

Here are the minimum specs we require:

Computers should have a minimum of 500 meg hard drive, and a
CD Rom drive, and Windows 95 (preferably a Pentium 1).
The necessary Excel software will be added by JRI-Poland.

If you have a used laptop gathering dust, or your company is
upgrading and may be willing to donate a laptop to a worthwhile
project, we will arrange to get it to Poland. In fact, we know
several people who are leaving prior to mid-October so please
don't delay if you can help out. Don't worry if it needs
a little work; JRI-Poland will take care of that.

In accordance with US IRS regulations and JRI-Poland's 501(c)(3)
status, a US tax receipt will be issued for the current market value
of the computer. If you can help, please contact me as soon as
possible.
