IGS Tel-Aviv Branch & SIG Sephardim - "The Alliance Schools in Greece." - Monday January 9, 2006 #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

The meeting will consist of two parts: the business section & the lecture.
During the business section of the meeting, elections for branch officers
will be held. Billie Stein, current branch president, is willing to remain
in her position for the next year and requests the approval of the
membership. Rose Feldman, current branch secretary, is willing to remain in
her position for the next year, and requests the approval of the membership.
Avraham Sfadia, current branch treasurer, would like to step down >from his
position. Michael Restatcher has submitted his candidacy for the position.
In addition, the membership's approval is requested for the appointment of
Ephraim Shimshi CPA, as the new accountant for IGS.
The meeting will begin at 18:45 PM (15 minutes earlier than usual). In the
event that a simple majority of the members are not present, the elections
will take place at 19:00 PM, regardless of the number of people present.
*only fully paid up members (2005) may participate in the voting*. The
lecture is open to all, as usual.

Our guest for the evening is Prof. Moshe Faraggi. Prof. Faraggi is a
physical chemist who has taught at the Ben Gurion Univerisity and at various
universities in the US, France and Canada. Prof. Faraggi's genealogical
research of his family has led him to document the involvement of Eli
Raphael Faraggi, his great grandfather as the driving force behind the
creation of the Alliance schools in the towns of Volos and Larissa in
Greece. The school in Volos was the first Alliance school of the
Judeo-Espagniol communities in the Ottoman Empire.

Rothschild Blvd., Tel-Aviv, at 19:00. The meeting will be in Hebrew.

Re: Rabbi Robber SEREBRENIK: Vienna-Luxemburg #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Milton Koch asked: "for information about Rabbi Robber SEREBRENIK, who
resided in Vienna in the 1920s, then became Grand Rabbi of Luxemburg.
Where was he born, and what other information is available about him?

I have just spent over an hour on the phone with a cousin once- removed
of Rabbi SEREBRENIK. In the family he was known as Robert. He left
Luxembourg and became a rabbi in NY in the 1940s. He was probably born
in Vienna but we have not confirmed this yet.

If you search the www for "Robert SEREBRENIK" you will find various
references, see for instance [in German]

http://histoprim.cte.lu/lehrer/wk11.html

and references to the Nuremberg trials.

And here you will find him officiating at a wedding in NY on 28 May 1950
"Married at Temple Ramath Orah on 110th St by Rabbis Dr. Robert Serebrenik
(Rabbi >from Temple).... " see:

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~alcalz/tree/data/p31.htm

and unbelievably this family tree belongs to our Austria-Czech webmaster.

This branch of the SEREBRENIK family came to Vienna >from a town called
Bobruisk in Byeloruss/Belarus.

We know that Robert's father was a brother of Moschko SEREBRENIK who
was a cantor and kosher butcher in Vienna. Moscho may be identical to
Joseph we can see in the IKG database dying in 1921. We know that he
died young. I have not had time to do more work on this. Here are the
burials in the Zentralfriedhof, Vienna Tor 1 and Tor IV]:

Serebrenik - Silbermann Babette aged 7.5 buried 15.08.1900
TI 19 16 5 with Sebrenik Ignaz aged 2.5 buried 12.09.1899 [see footnote]

Serebrenik Josef aged 49 died 01.11.1921 T IV 11 29 28
Serebrenik Josef aged 30 died 27.01.1933 T IV 16B 6 31

Serebrenik Leopold aged 54 buried 08.09.1919 TI 52 8 20
Sebrenik Wilhelmine aged 48 died 13.10.1913 TI 52 8 20*

These SEREBRENIK were still in Vienna in April 1938 when they had to
present asset files:
Peisach 1873-04-17

This is one family is definitely related to Robert the Luxembourg rabbi:

Otto 1908-02-03
Lili 1912-09-23
Regina 1873-11-06

Regina - the mother of Otto - was nee WEISS >from Goding. We know little
about her family as yet, but I am on the trail. Regine tragically was
murdered in the holocaust and we remember her here today.

Lili was nee FELBERBAUM and her mother was nee ARNSTEIN [>from Bohemia].
The FELBERBAUM owned a clothes shop in Hollandstrasse, Vienna II. We do
not know who Peisach is. The dates of birth given in the asset files for
Otto and Lili are actually incorrect.

There are two SEREBRENIK listed in the Vienna phone book of 1933:
Berthold and Max; both live at the same address in Webgasse 6. Vienna VI.
Max is just listed as *Dr* but Berthold sounds fascinating:

Berthold - Erster Konzertmeister a. Straustheater. Violin Padagoge [teacher]
[Konzert und Jazz Orchester SEREBRENIK].

So this appears to have been a musical family. There is a family photograph
of Otto [died USA] and his brother Alfred [died UK] singing in a Vienna
synagogue choir ca 1918, led by their father. Hopefully Max and Berthold
managed to escape the holocaust.

Celia Male [U.K.]

* Footnote: A reverse grave search {enter only the grave no and no name}
reveals more burials with Babette - Note the different spelling for the
toddler Ignaz - the Friedman family may be a database mistake or they
could be related: ZF TOR I 19 16 5
Friedmann Bernhard aged 64 buried 4.05.1920
Friedmann Gustav aged 27 died 26.02.1890
Sebrenik Ignaz aged 2.5 buried 12.09.1899
Serebrenik - Silbermann Babette aged 7.5 buried 15.08.1900
Silbermann Serebrenik Babette aged 7.5 buried 15.08.1900

and it also revealed Wilhemine buried with Leopold - her name was written
Sebrenik Wilhelmine in the database.

Re: Jewish community of Prossnitz #austria-czech

David & Diana Laufer <dlaufer@...>
 

Amira Kohn-Tratner and Dan Huth both recently posted enquiries to this SIG
regarding Prossniitz, Moravia (now Prostejov) where some of their ancestors
had been born.

My grandfather Julius BRAUN was also born in Prossnitz in 1872, but married
in Vienna in 1899 and died in Vienna in 1939. According to the record of
this marriage Julius' parents were Eduard BRAUN and Leni geb. WEISS.

When I made enquiries of the Czech National Archives for his birth record
the answer I received was:
Quote
further to your request, please be informed: The registers of Jewish
community of Prostejov are not preserved for the years 1829-1873. The most
of original volumes were destroyed by nacists during the WW II. Due to this
reason we are not able to convey you data you are looking for.
We recommend you to send your request to the district archives in Prostejov
(Statni okresni archiv Prostejov, Trebízského 1-3, 796 40 Prostejov), where
could be deposited the Residents Registration Cards, police records and the
list of census - documents - in which the information about family Braun
also could be preserved.
Unquote.

Although I have not yet followed up on this recommendation I pass it on to
others for their information.

Also, shortly afterwards I received a comment >from another SIGGER:
"I know that Prostejov catholic duplicates (of Jewish records) 1846-1873
are stored in Central archive, Prague"

I did later receive >from the Czech National Archives the advice that:
Eduard BRAUN died of tubercolosis at the age of 41 on 4.2.1881 and was
buried two days later 6.2.1881 in Prossnitz, and had been married for
12 years.

Can anyone tell me about the given name Leni ? Is it a name in its own
right, or the diminutive form of another name such as Helene ?

2. Is Prasseditz also Prossnitz or is this a different place entirely?
Prasseditz (the correct German name was Prosetitz)/Prosetice in old district
Teplitz/Teplice in Bohemia.

Three Prossnitz (correct not with ss but with a German sharp s) in Czech
Republic:
Prossnitz/Prostejov (e with a diacritic tickmark over the letter), old
