Morton GOULD's Wife ? BANKS #general

S. Harris <jewishgen@...>
 

I am searching for the first name of famed songwriter/ASCAP executive
Morton GOULD's (ex-?) wife. Her maiden name was BANKS and she had a
brother, named Jimmy.

She may or may not be the mother of some/all of GOULD's four
children; Deborah, Abby, Eric and David. She was not among Morton's
survivors (GOULD was born on December 10, 1913 in Richmond Hills, New
York and died February 21, 1996 in Orlando, Florida. He is buried at the
New Montefiore Cemetery, Suffolk Couty, in West Babylon, New York. His
(former?) wife may or may not be buried beside him.

I haven't found an online index to the cemetery and if no one has
this information handy- I can't find any federal census information- I
may end up calling the cemetery director.

Thanks for any insight.

Lithuanian Pinkes & Brisk history #rabbinic

<jim_brook1935@...> wrote:

In the Jewish Encyclopaedia is mentioned about Rabbi Judah of
Tropau of Brest-Litovsk. It then states that his signature is in the

And in an earlier posting has enquired about rabbis in Brest
Litovsk/ Brisk, using as a source material which appears on the
entry for the city in the Jewish Encyclopedia (JE below).

The main source (as acknowledged by its author) for the JE entry is
the Hebrew work on the town entitled "Ir Tehiloh." It was published
in Warsaw in 1886 and its main author was Aryeh Leib Feinstein. The
author was aware of his own inadequacies as a historian and had
sufficient modesty to circulate copies or proofs of his ms to
several more knowledgeable historians. The latters' learned
responses occupy a major section of the published work.

Nevertheless, this book remains a mess. The list of rabbis of Brest,
quoted in the JE is taken as a block >from Ir Tehiloh. Some of these
are well known with documented dates and lives. Others - including
the above mentioned R' Yehuda of Tropau - are unknown to this
poster. Many are not in historical order, and some (e.g. Rabbi
David Oppenheim) have only a tenuous connection with Brisk. (Wealthy
rabbis were and are occasionally awarded the rabbinic equivalent of
honorary degrees, namely the title of Rav or ABD in a town, where it
was understood there was no chance of acceptance. Mutual benefits
could be derived >from such titles).

One of the respondents mentioned above states that in earlier times
no rabbi was appointed in Brest for longer than three years!

The topic of "The Rabbis of Brisk" awaits its definitive author.

KRAUS of Jerusalem #rabbinic

Shoshana L. Boublil
 

In 1949, my great-grandfather, Rav Chaim Yitzchak KORB (ba'al
Netivot Chaim) came to Israel, to Jerusalem. A short time later
he married Yetl KRAUS, the daughter of Rav Yehudah KRAUS.

Does anyone have any of the following information:

a) When the marriage took place?

b) Any information on the KRAUS family?

c) Any information on any Hespedim connected with his passing away
in 1957?

Thank you,

Shoshana L. Boublil

In a message posted on 2004.10.26, I had asked:

Can someone please explain what exactly the word "Pinkes" relates
to?
I would like to thank everyone for their help. However, I have two
additional questions:

Is Pinkes or Pinkas the preferred and recognized English spelling?

I was referred to a picture of the Pinkas of the Mishna Study
Society at the Klaus Synagogue in Medzhibozh (Podolia) for the year
5620 (=1860). This is on the web at:
www.friends-partners.org/partners/beyond-the-pale/eng_captions/31-6.html

Does anyone know if there might be a picture any place of a Pinkas
for the Shtetl of Brest-Litovsk >from any year?

Dear friends, for years I have searching long lost relatives.
The search pay off. I found part of my Rothman/Rotman family.
Thanks to Jewishgen and the Ukraine SIG.
Unfortunately they are in Chile and I am in Canada, but a
"new uncle" is flying to Buenos Aires and will meet there with
the rest of the Argentinean part of the family they never new
they had and neither did we.
A very emotional thanks to all of you for your wonderful work.

Photo Gallery #ciechanow #poland

Dear group,

On a few occasions people have sent me photos >from Ciechanow. I was thinking
of setting up a photo gallery on the Ciechanow web page. I would like to get
some input >from the group on this in terms of the what the cut off year should
be in terms of when a photo was taken. General comments, suggestions and ideas
would be appreciated. If you have a collection of Ciechanow photos I would like
to hear about it. One photo I recently received is of the train station - a
wooden structure with a sign saying "Ciechanow". Maybe there is someone in the
group who wants to take an active role in this project. The process of
developing the feature involves: photo selection, arranging for the photo
donors to sign donor agreements, and setting the photos on an html page.

Hope to hear >from some of you on this.

Hi All,
My grandfather's cousin mentions in his journal that his store was
profitable during World War I and afterwards, before the pogroms
began in Ukraine. I was not aware that it was possible, especially for
Jews, to do a decent business during those years. Does anyone else
have stories of relatives who fared well during the World War I years?

Locating burial site in Jerusalem #general

Joan Rosen <jrosen@...>
 

Chaim Zelig WEITZMAN made Aliyah in 1929, and his is buried somewhere in
Jerusalem. Death date is unknown. A relative of his visited the grave site
years ago, but no longer remembers the name of the cemetery. The Chevra
Kaddisha would have had the name Chortkov in it. (He was born in Lanskoron
but did not live there long.) My friend, for whom I ask this question, is
going to Israel in December, and would very much like to visit her
relative's grave site. How can I help her find the name of the cemetery?

I have searched the Jewishgen's cemetery database (JOWBR) and not found
anyone who matches him.

Please note: I am doing this for a friend. I do not know anything further
about Chaim Zelig Weitzman, nor have I any interest personally in Chortkov,
or Lanskoron.

Thanks for your help.
