Black bread disease #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

Black bread disease probably refers to what is also known as "St.
Anthony's fire" --- a ailment due to to consuming the fungus ergot
which grows on rye grain. (The hallucinogen LSD is a member of the
ergot family.)
Symptoms of St. Anthony's fire included " hallucinations, panic,
convulsions, and painful burning in their limbs that followed a loss
of circulation in constricted blood vessels. " [>from an article on
using ergot to treat migraine headaches.]

Howie Axelrod asked:
My Grandfather >from Russia / Poland is alleged to have died from
"Black Bread Disease". It is apparently a Europeon term. Anyone have
any idea as to what this is?

Seeking VM6914/5:Unknown ENGELSON or Ozer MILLER-Kefar Saba, Israel in 1964 #general

Joan Engel
 

Attention Israel-based Genners: I am looking for Ozer MILLER or his
descendants. Ozer and his wife lived in Kefar Saba, Israel in 1964 or
1969. He was married to a woman whose maiden name was ENGELSON. I
believe she was a telephone operator in 1964 or 1969. Mrs. Miller
(nee Engelson) is related to my paternal ggm, Neche ENGELSON, who
lived in Vilna.

I have placed a photo of the MILLER's (a very good looking couple) on
Viewmate along with the Yiddish note (and translation) on the back of
the photo.

Please go http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html and select
the to view option to see VM 6914 and VM 6915.

Yaakov Goldwasser <ygoldwas@...>
 

We are pleased to announce the translation to English of three additional
chapters >from the Radzyn Podlaski Yizkor Book:

1. The unbroken chain: by Mordechai Tannenbaum.
The history and importance of the &#8216;Blue Thread&#8217; for the Radzyner Chassidim,
the attempts to produce it again after the end of World War II and how this
was finally accomplished in Israel.

2. Teachers, whips and youth: by Zanvil Zaltzstein. The author describes
early childhood education in a Cheder in Radzyn.

3. >from those days: by M. Ben Shmuel. A description of life in the Chassidic
community in the time of Reb Mordecai Yosef the Radzyner Rabbi, relationship
with Chassidim who came >from other towns to be near the Rabbi and the
changes that eventually came about .

We thank Joyce Field, Lance Ackerfeld and all the Yizkor Book Project
personnel for uploading the chapters onto the Radzyn Yizkor Book website:

KANTOROVITZ and/or SCHATZ descendants of the Gaon of Vilna #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I recently posted a message regarding a supposed link to the family of Reb'
Chaim of Volozhin. I mentioned there that we have a rather superficial and
questionable family tradition of a family link to the Gaon of Vilna which I
would like to check.

I should say that I've perused Chaim Friedman's "Eliayahu's Branches" and
have corresponded with him.

In the same very skimpy family chart which I mentioned previously there is
scribbled a link to the Gaon through my KANTOR(OVITZ) lineage. And from
another side but on the same chart appears the name SCHATZ.

Interestingly, both names appear as descendants of the Gaon but both names
are pretty common since again by strange coincidence they mean Cantor or
Shaliach Tzibur. As to the KANTOR side we are not sure if it is KANTOR or
KANTOROVITZ (as appear in Friedman's book). Two sibbling of previous
generations have documents each written differently.

As to SCHATZ we know that my ggggrandfather YOSEPH was a Chazan (cantor) in
Pinsk but we are not sure if this was his family name also or just his
profession and that we never had his real family name-if he had one
(beginning 19th cent. in Pinsk).
His daughter (my gggrandmother was Sarah Hinde).

Our KANTOR(OVITZ) ancestors are >from Slonim. My ggggrandfather was SHLOMO
ben ELIEZER (possibly a Rosh Yeshiva in Karlin)(and RACHEL) ben YAACOV MOSHE
ben AVRAHAM.
I've explored this line before in this group and received replies that
there were two lineages in Slonim with the same names of fathers and sons so
that there could be a mistake on our family chart presuming that we were
from the Gaon.
Shana Tova, Ktiva ve'chatima tova to all. May we all be blessed with a
Happy and Healthy New Year.
