Early Jewish Communities of the Caribbean Laura Leibman
Tuesday, November 16, 2010
Jews in the American colonies didn't stay put for long: one year they
were in Newport, the next in Amsterdam, London, New York, Curacao,
Jamaica, Barbados, or Suriname. These wanderers, referred to as
'Port Jews', were Sephardi and Ashekenazi merchants who resided in and
traveled between port towns during the seventeenth and eighteenth
centuries. This talk introduces people to the main Caribbean ports
settled in by early American Jews as well as the cities >from which
they came. We will look at some of the distinctive artistic and
religious traditions they brought with them, particularly gravestones.
The talk will close with an overview of key Jewish symbols found on
gravestones, as well as clues on how to get the most out of
gravestones as a genealogical resource

Where: Congregation Ahavath Achim, 3225 SW Barbur Blvd., Portland, OR
About our Speaker: Laura Liebman
Laura Leibman is an Associate Professor of English and Humanities at
Reed College. Her area of expertise is early American studies. She is
the published author of numerous academic articles on Jews in the
American colonies as well as the book Indian Converts (U. Mass Press,
2008). Dr. Liebman is currently writing a book on early American
Jewish life called Friendly Piranhas (forthcoming).
Time: Doors open by 7:00 PM for expert assistance with your genealogy
problems. You are invited to send a short synopsis of your question
ahead of time to jgsoregon@.... Program will start at
7:30.Admission is free to members of JGSO, $5 donation requested from

Where is Eddina? #general

Marla Cohen
 

I recently found a "clue" to my great-grandfather's place of origin.
On the 1920 Census record, it lists Odessa as place of birth. In
parentheses is (Eddina).
Does anyone know what that refers to?

WALLISCH - Czech Torah #general

Linda Gilmore <lggrn@...>
 

I am trying to locate the name of the town my congregation's Holocaust Torah
came from. The Torah has a thin silver band on it with the inscription
"Geroichment van Isah (possibly Isak) und David Wallisch". The Memorial
Scroll Trust only knows the Torah came >from Moravia or Bohemia and is
considered an "orphan" Torah. If I can find the family, maybe I can find the
town of origin and my community can adopt that town.

I do not know what the first word means nor do I have any idea what year the
Torah was written.

Can anyone help me?
