First name Kadish #belarus

Nordell, Larry <lnordell@...>
 

My mother told me that her grandfather, Kadish Ber EPSTEIN, had been
born after his father died, and that he was a "kadish" for his father,
and was given his father's name. I therefore reconstructed his father
as Ber Epstein, or more likely Dov Ber Epstein. However, in the Slutsk
Chevra Kedisha records there is an entry in 1913 that reads: "On
Wednesday the twenty-fourth day of M'Av (27 August 1913) passed away the
rabbi renowned in tora and in G-D fearing the G-D fearing elderly rabbi
mh"r r' Kadish Dov Bear the son of the rabbi mh"r r' Shalom2
Epshtein..."
There is a footnote on Shalom that reads "Actually, in the Hebrew it is
dotted: Shilem"

Can anyone tell me whether my mother's story about the use of the name
Kadish was correct, in which case my great-great grandfather's name
would have been Dov Bear Epshtein and his listing as Shalom in the
Pinkas would have been an error? Or could my mother have been wrong, and
the name Kadish given by itself without repeating his father's name?

Fw: IVYE document at Yad Vashem #belarus

Jack Menes <jm1157@...>
 

To those interested in the town of Ivye,

As most of you know, Yad Vashem has put on its website a new category of
documents called Shoah-Related Lists. In particular, there is a document of
77 pages that can be looked at, that is described as a list of people
murdered in the Grodno Ghetto. Although Yad Vashem maintains that its
description is correct, my own impression is that it is a list of Jews
murdered in the Ivye Ghetto.

I looked for a few of the names on the list in Pages of Testimony connected
to Grodno, without success. On the other hand, I was able to find a few
families that are on the list, among the Pages of Testimony connected to
Ivye. There are about 30 people with the name BAKSHT listed on the first
page of the document. This name is not in the Pages of Testimony of Grodno,
but is common in Ivye. Likewise among Family Finders at Jewish Gen.

In any case, those interested in Ivye should take a look at this document.
It's in Russian and sometimes hard to read! It can be found by going to Yad
Vashem website, preferably with Internet Explorer, clicking on Shoah
Related
Lists, typing in Grodno and leaving everything else blank. As of now, 36
items show up. Near the end there is one called List of Jews who Perished
in
the Grodno Ghetto. It purports to have 10,850 names. Actually 2000-3000 is
more correct. (77 pages x 30 names/page = ?).

There is a brides and grooms listing for NYC marriages. Is there something
similar for Baltimore marriages? How can one find a marriage certificate
from 1917-1918?

Hello Maureen and SIGers -

I would hazard an opinion that it may well have been fairly widely
available. I have a copy, also in good condition, that probably
belonged to my late Mother and was possibly a Bar Mitzvah presentation,
although there is no dedication in the book. It was printed in 1909 and has
a few family grave plot references penciled in on the back page.

I have a book here by Max Grunwald, written in German and entitled,
"Beruria". Printed in Vienna in 1907. 663 pages. The sub-title is:
Gebet-und Andachtsbuch fu:r ju:dische Frauen und Ma:dchen (roughly:
Prayer and Meditations Book for Jewish Women and Girls). This copy is
gorgeous, a padded cloth-covered book with creamy pages and intact binding.
It does not appear used.

Per Internet searches: Max Grunwald was a rabbi, a published
anthropologist-sociologist. Also, per the Internet: BERURIA was the
wife of the noted second-century talmudic scholar Rabbi Meir, and a
scholar in her own right (Pesachim 62b).

My question: have any of you ever heard of this book? Do you have
any idea how broadly it was available, and used?

I look forward to your replies. Thank you.

is found, go to request a review!

re Michael Bernet's amazing revelations today: <==In the 1940s there was a
Hachshara (training farm for settlement in Palestine) in the neighborhood
(either Dyserth or At. Asaph) part of the Bachad Organization of Orthodox
Zionist youths, associated with the Mizrachi Party. The majority of members
were refugees >from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia.

==I know that one couple left the Hachshara and opened an icecream parlor
in Rhuddlan--the only source of kosher icecream for 100 miles around. Guido may

have been one of the icecream merchants, or he may have been registered as
an alien in Rhuddlan, as the administrative government center for the wider
area.>

Wonders will never cease ... Please read this, where there are a number of
references to the ice cream shop in Rhuddlan; one correspondent even served
there. I am sure it will be easy to find people who knew Guido! I will proceed
along those lines.
