Hebrew Translation #romania

J. Michael Burke, D.C. <ichiro@...>
 

I have posted two letters believed to have been written by my
grandfather, a rabbi in Bessarabia, around 1920. The file names are
VM5807 and VM5809 and can be viewed at

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/index.asp

We have already received a couple of translations for the first file,
VM5807. The second one was written to introduce my father to a rabbi in
Paris as he traveled >from Europe to Canada.

Any and all assistance with translation is greatly appreciated.

Hello
Maybe somebody can help: For a long time I have been trying to find if
there is anybody left that maybe knew my father Aron LEWKOWICZ,dob:1914,
Czenstochau,Polen. Brothers that survived the Holocaust with him were
David Lewkowicz, dob: 1924, Czenstochau,Polen. And Herschel Lewkowicz,
dob: 1912, Czenstochau, Polen. His parents (my grandparents) name were
Abraham Lewkowicz, dob:1877,and Laja Lewkowicz,dob:1885,maiden name was
WARSHAWSKI. Befor the war started my father was married to his childhood
sweetheart, her name was Jadzia FUCHS, speeling may not be correct. Her
birthdate may have been 1915. When the Germans moved into Czenstochau
she was pregnant with their first child. She was killed in Treblinka
along with the rest of the family. After the war my father married my
mother Rachel Blima CYMBALISTA,dob:1922,in Rakow, Polen. I can find no
information on her family either. Fathers name was Moshe and Rifka
Cymbalista, (my grandparents) maiden name GOLDMAN, dob: was 1895.For

Re: Eios #general

ac <anitac47@...>
 

Thanks to all for their considered responses on this name.

I think the person who originally did the transliteration added the "E" to
establish the pronunciation as "eeos". The backwards N (the "ee") is a long
"e" sound. The "b" at the end (not a letter but a sound modifier) turns the
backwards N into a Yi (yee)--sort of. Hence Yos. What is interesting is
that, as I have explained to others, the clerks seemed to have homogenized
the names so that there are no variants so that there are only Sruls but no
Israels, Mordkos but no Mordechais, Sura but no Sara, etc. I'm not sure if
this was the way it is actually recorded in the registers or the clerks in
the archives who typed this up did it. My experience with register sheets
is that there are variants sometimes.

What I've learned in doing this (for the first time) is that it is not
exact and if you have any number of versions of the transliterations of the
Cyrillic letters you will have that many slight differences. I've been told
to use Beider's, or the LOC. I've downloaded many >from different Slavic
language departments. I only found one that goes letter by letter to give
explanations of the sounds, the changes depending on their positions in a
word, etc. (and stupidly didn't record the website--if I find it I'll post
it). This at least gives you an understanding.

And yes, someone will look this over for me.

This all reminds me of Allan Sherman's version of that Irish song that he
did with all the names "....Stein with an ei and Styne with a y..."

Reincarnation & Transmigration #general

Arnold Samlan
 

My thanks to those of you on the list who responded to my query.

I appreciate the correction as to my use of the word "reincarnation", which,
I learned, generally is applied to a return to life in human form. It was
this belief with which I was somewhat familiar as a belief that was prominent
in mystical thought, including that of Hasidism.

The more appropriate word in referring to returning to life as an animal, I
have been told, is "transmigration," which also can refer to returning in
human form. This belief was foreign to me as a Jewish belief.

As to my family's "shtick," it came down to me through one aunt. She pretty
much had the belief related to farm animals (no doubt because those were the
animals they had in Yarun). And it seemed that coming back as an animal
was directly related to a person doing evil during his/her life.

So far, people on the lists have confirmed similar beliefs in Hasidic
circles. In my opinion, it was probably what I would consider a folk belief that
found its way into the community because it was an extension of other beliefs
about reincaration and such.

While this hasn't really helped me to narrow down my geographic focus, it
was nice to know that Aunt Anna wasn't alone out there.
