Descendants of Rabbi DAVID, Rabbi of Novarodok 18th cent #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to my family history, an ancester of mine was the brother
of a Rabbi of Novarodok, David ben (son of) Moshe of Kletzk. I have
not found any source which states David's family name (if he had one).
Interestingly in a list of Rabbis of Novarodok where he is mentioned,
the rabbis before and after him were noted with family names. Someone
wrote to me years ago that his family name was TCHEMERINSKY, but I
have not confirmed this. BTW, Chaim Weitzman (First president of the
state of Israel)'s mother was a TCHEMERINSKY.

In the far past I was in touch with descendants of the above Rabbi but
have since lost contact with them and would like to renew my research
regarding our exact connection. Some of the family names connected to
married children were RABINOVICH, AGOLNICK, HOROWITZ.

I would be happy to hear >from anyone who are descendants of the above
Rabbi David and may know about our connection.

Happy Pesach

Hello and Happy Passover Siggers,

I am wondering if anyone here knows if there was a Mandatory Military
Service in Hungary. At what age were people required to draft and for
how long?

The reason for my question is that I know my father had been drafted
to Military service of several years before WWII broke (he was born
1915). I know that he was released >from service and returned home.

Then, after WWII broke, he was drafted again to Forced Labor
Battalions around 1941.

I am trying to draw the timeline of his life events and I am missing

Re: Mandatory Military Service #hungary

tom
 

yes, there was. my father served 2 years, starting at age 21, was discharged on his 23rd birthday, and was called up again 6 months later, when war broke out in september 1939, and assigned to forced labour. as a regular soldier, he was in the garrison at buda castle.

there was also compulsory pre-military training, which was notorious for being particularly unpleasant towards jews. (just as army service was.) my father avoided it by signing up for an alternative: a boxing champion, who happened to be a friend, ran a gym, and he signed up for boxing training instead.

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County
(JGSCV) will meet Sunday, April 8 >from 1:30-3:30 pm at Temple Adat Elohim

Thursday, April 12 the United States and Israel commemorate Yom HaShoah.
Yom HaShoah is commemorated on the 27th of Nisan, it marks the anniversary
of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.

Program: Survivor Celina Biniaz: The Youngest of Schindler's Jews

JGSCV is honored to have as our Yom Hashoah program speaker the youngest of
Schindler's List Jews, Celina Biniaz. An article in last year's Jewish

two years in Germany as a displaced person. She and her parents were
sponsored to come to America in 1947. Her testimony appears in "Voices from
the List," part of the Schindler's List DVD.

"I always tell Steven Spielberg (director of Schindler's List) that he gave
me a voice," she said. "I say, 'You are my second Schindler. He gave me
life, but you gave me a voice. Because for 40 years, I never was able to
talk about it because I didn't think that anybody would understand.' "

My Ancestors Came from Ivangorod. I mean Deblin! (Dealing with Country City and Street Name Changes) - New JGSLI Video #general

Nolan Altman
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island (JGSLI), winner of the IAJGS
2015 Outstanding Publication Award for its You Tube Channel, is pleased to
announce its latest video, "My Ancestors Came >from Ivangorod. I Mean Deblin!
(Dealing with Country, City, and Street Name Changes)".

The purpose of this video is to remind genealogists that they should
consider changes in the names of countries, states, counties, cities and
streets when reading documents. Things change. And then they change some
more. Even now we see changes in Crimea or new countries like South Sudan.
As genealogists, we need to consider that when we see a country, city or
street name on a document, that information belongs to a point in time.
Information as of a point, that may have since changed.

You can access all 38 of our short instructional videos directly >from our
You Tube Channel at
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUV8xttIn93AwJX2_I0AIAg/feed or >from our
website http://jgsli.org/ If you have any comments or recommendations for
other topics, please let me know at past_pres@jgsli.org
