Yom Ha'Atzmaut 5778
April 19, 2018

Dear JewishGen Family,

In honor of Yom Ha'Atzmaut, and the 70th birthday of the State of Israel,
here are links to a few articles contained in various Yizkor Books that
JewishGen has translated. They contain first-hand accounts of the dreams,
yearnings, desires, and hardships that people experienced to reach the
land of Israel.

(1) Plonsk, Poland: "My Youth in Plonsk" - by David Ben-Gurion.
https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/plonsk/plo031.html
This article >from the Plonsk, Poland Yizkor Book was written by the first
Prime Minister of Israel, and describes, in great detail, his desire to
embrace the Hebrew language, and to live in Israel >from a young age.

(2) "I Made Aliyah on the Eve of the Holocaust" (scroll down to p. 195) -
by Sarah Yasmin (Schwartzblat).
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/rokitnoye/rok179.html
Anyone who has read the Leon Uris book "Exodus" or seen the movie will
recognize this story written by a former resident of Roktyne (which is
included in the Roktyne, Ukraine Yizkor Book). Sarah writes of the
squalid conditions of the decrepit ships, the fears of people who knew
the chances to reach 'Eretz Yisroel' "were dim" and the British efforts
to turn away refugees.

(3) "In the days of the Second Aliyah" - by Rivka Machneimy (Holodenko).
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/bender/ben081.html
This article (>from the Bender, Moldova Yizkor Book) was written by the
daughter of Baruch Holodenko (a well-known educator, and delegate to the
Zionist Congress), who made Aliyah at the age of 17, and against the
wishes of her father.

4) ">from Divenishok to Eretz-Israel" (scroll down to page 119) - by
Khenye Harari. https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/dieveniskes/die087.html
A small article (>from the Divenishok, Lithuania Yizkor Book) which
imparts the joy and anticipation the author felt as she approached Israel.

Wishing you all the best and Chag Sameach,

JGS of Maryland April 29 program #general

Susan Steeble
 

Speaker: Brooke Schreier Ganz
Title: "Reclaim The Records: Using Freedom of Information Laws for Genealogy"
Date and Time: Sunday, April 29, 2018, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library'?s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd,
Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, April 29, 2018, to hear Brooke Schreier Ganz
present "?Reclaim The Records: Using Freedom of Information Laws for
Genealogy."

Tired of being told by archives, libraries, and government agencies
that the genealogical records you want are "unavailable"? We were,
too, so we figured out how to do something about it. We're Reclaim The
Records, a new not-for-profit activist group of more than 5000
genealogists, researchers, historians, and journalists. We use Freedom
of Information laws - and sometimes even lawsuits - to obtain copies of
previously inaccessible archival record sets, which we then put online
for free public use.

We've won the first-ever public and online access to more than twenty
million archival records, including the New York City marriage license
index (1909-1995), the New York State death index (1880-1956), and the
New Jersey marriage index (1901-2016), and we have an ongoing lawsuit
for the Missouri birth and death index (1910-present), and more. This
presentation will explain how we accomplished this, as well as the
history and legal basics of Freedom of Information laws, and will
teach researchers how to file requests for any records that may help
their own family tree research.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at
www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program
of future meetings.

The Global Partisans' Song Project on South African National TV #lithuania

Eli Rabinowitz
 

This impressive 12 minute segment on the Global Partisans' Song
Project featured on SABC TV, South Africa's national television
network, last Sunday:

https://youtu.be/tnaCtuqVBgg

There are many Jewish educators around the world with connections to
either United Herzlia Schools in Cape Town or King David Schools in
Johannesburg.

Add to that the large percentage of Jewish South African migrants who
attended these two schools.

They must feel particularly proud of their Alma Maters that are engaging
Jewish students to stand up and be proud and knowledgeable of their
Jewish cultural heritage.

We must not forget the significant contribution of the teachers and many
students of the ORT schools in the FSU - the Former Soviet Union, who
have participated.
ORT schools in the FSU which have supported the program are in Russia,
Ukraine, Moldova, Lithuania and Estonia.

The most prominent Jewish person who attended Herzlia School in Cape =
Town is none other than the Chief Rabbi of the British Commonwealth, =
Ephraim Mirvis.

For Belarus genealogy basics:

an interview with a guy >from Minsk archives who tells about sources, ways
and terms of independent search. On my non-profit graves.by website
there are links to archives and online resources though in Belarus
many handy sources are offline.
