Family roots of Ambassador David FRIEDMAN #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

A lawyer friend of mine in Jerusalem believes he may be related to the
recently appointed Ambassador to Israel, David FRIEDMAN. I only know
that his father was Rabbi Morris FRIEDMAN of North Woodmere. Does
anyone on this forum know the family roots of the above so I can
relate them to my friend.

TIA

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

MODERATOR NOTE: Private responses only, please.

Searching for Ethel Beane FOREMAN in Baltimore #general

David Laskin
 

I am researching an African American woman named Ethel Beane Foreman,
born White Stone, Virginia, 1895, died Great Neck, NY, 1964. Ethel, a
domestic servant, lived with my family for the last 10 years of her
life. I know that in 1930 she lived at 2119 MuCulloh, St. in Baltimore,
and I recently discovered that the Sharon Israel synagogue was five
doors down >from Ethel's address. I'm guessing that Ethel worked as a
domestic for a nearby family, very possibly a Jewish family like ours.

I'd love to hear >from anyone with memories of her.

She sometimes used the surnames Caster and Nickens. If you knew her,
you wouldn't forget her -- reddish complexion, near-sighted, crusty,
fierce, hard-working, super responsible, with a heart of gold.

Thanks!
David Laskin, Seattle, WA

Soviet Merchant Agency "Amtorg" #ukraine

iralaw@...
 

Alexander Sharon recently wrote that in 1931 was a record year for
reverse immigration by U.S. residents to the USSR due to advertisements
by the Soviet Merchant Agency "Amtorg" for specialists. I believe that
my grandfather, a doctor, was one of those who returned. Are there any
data bases that contain information about those who returned to the
U.S.S.R. as a result of this program? I would be most interested in
researching them.

ViewMate translation requested (Hebrew or Yiddish?) #germany

jberlowitz331@...
 

Dear SIGgers,

On ViewMate 55089 I have posted the image of an inscription in
handwritten Hebrew characters found on the flyleaf of a book on
midwifery published in Berlin in 1830. I would like a translation in
English and am curious to know if anything is said about the woman
whose name appears above the inscription. The book belonged to Dr.
Ludwik Finkelstein, a well-known scientist who died in London in 2011.
His wife, Mirjam FINKELSTEIN (WIENER) Z"L was a descendant of the
PHILIPSBORN family.
