"Kollel Galicia" #rabbinic

Israel P
 

As has been mentioned here before, the offices of Kollel Hibat Zion
(120 Mea Shearin Street, Jerusalem) hold handwritten records of
collections in Galician towns and cities to help support the
Galicianers living in Jerusalem. These files are for the years
~1925-1938, earlier files having been lost when the Old City fell.

The records of the collections are in two metal filing cabinets and
are arranged in eighty-three loose leaf folders in alphabetical
order (Hebrew letters). The purpose of this post is to advise that
the list of communties is now online at
http://www.pikholz.org/KGal/Cabinet.html
with my best efforts at giving the town names in Latin letters.
I am quite sure that this can be improved upon but I would really
appreciate it if corrections were limited to certainties, not guesses.
(We already have enough of those.)

The actual records, which sometimes reflect several collections each
year, do not tell much more than the fact that a particular person
lived in a particular town in a particular year (and how much he
contributed), but there is additional information in some cases.

The records are generally in Hebrew, but at least a few years of
Jaroslav collections (and maybe others as well) have the names in
Latin letters.

As Jacob Rosen said to me earlier this evening, "there is an ocean
of material there" and it is not realistic to think that much can
be gained >from a casual lookup.

Although the kollel is a private organization and these files are not
public property, they are quite good about letting people come in and
look through them, although anyone doing so should be aware of their
sensibilities. And a contribution to the kollel is in order for
anyone spending significant time there.

Their definition of Galicia is somewhat different >from ours, as it
does not include an arc of communities >from Buczacz to Skalat in the
southeastern corner of East Galicia. The files also include Karlsbad,
which while not being in Galicia, certainly had transient and/or ex-
patriate communities which would have supported the brethren in the
Holy Land. Files 84-85 include contributions >from German communities
and that list too is linked >from the above URL, with translation.
(There seem to be no such records >from the largest ex-patriate
community in Europe - Vienna.)

The kollel office also has journals with records of disbursements to
Galicianers in Jerusalem going well back into the 1800s and some
burial records which they say are not in the records of the Hassidic
Burial society.

Leivik - a Hebrew Name? Update #ukraine

Rochelle Gershenow
 

Thank you to the many Genners who responded to me privately or on the list
about my inquiry about whether Leivik is a Hebrew name. My father listed
Leivik as his Hebrew name on paperwork for a burial society. I need to know
what Hebrew name to put on his tombstone this coming year. So,I wanted to
determine what was the correct Hebrew name as I didn't think Leivik was
Hebrew. >from somewhere deep down in my memory I remembered my father
telling me that he was called Leibl boychik.

The answers I received >from people ran the gamut:

The Hebrew name is either Aryeh, Judah, Lev, or Levi.
Leivik is either a diminutive of the Hebrew "Levi" or the Yiddish "Leib" or
"Lev."

Well, I did get an answer to my original question, i.e., Leivik is not a
Hebrew name. Now, the decision as to what name to use has to be made.

Re: Confused about the Yaakov Koppels #rabbinic

I am very confused about the various Yaakov Koppels who lived in the
1700s. I have the following names:

Yaakov Koppel Hasid
Yaakov Koppel Likover
Yaakov Koppel Charif
Yaakov Koppel of Mezhirech
Koppel is a kinnuy of Ya`akov (Jakob -> Jakoble -> Kopele). You can
assume that every Koppel is a Ya`akov.

I found information on three of the above

Jacob Koppel Ben Aaron Sasslower (second half of 17th century),
authority on the masoretic text and cantillation, and author of a
work on the masorah. Jacob Koppel came >from Zaslavl near Ostrog
(Volhynia). He was the author of Nahalat Ya'akov (1686).

Jacob Koppel Ben Moses of Mezhirech (d. c. 1740), Polish kabbalist.
Jacob was influenced by the Shabbatean movement in Poland, and he
himself influenced Hasidism. His main published works are: Sha'arei
Gan Eden (Korets, 1803).

Jacob Harif was Av Bet Din of Leszniow and the province of Podolia.

Robert

There is an old photograph of Ship Alley on the
following website:

http://www.mernick.co.uk/thhol/p_well02.html

In case you are interested, there are a couple of
companies doing Jewish heritage walks - one of these
is called London Walks and their website is:

http://london.walks.com/

I have been on several walks with them and they have
been first class.

Another one is called Stepping Out but I believe they
are having a short break at the moment.

I have no commercial interest in either of these.

The local history library in Bancroft Road, Stepney
(also in the East End), has produced a leaflet of "do
it yourself" East End walks in conjunction with the
Jewish East End Celebration Society. The library also
has many records on the Jewish East End, and a
wonderful selection of old photographs.

I hope your enjoy your stay in London.

Dear Friends -

I wonder if anyone can point me to a website that shows pre-WW2 roads in
London, or point me to any related information. The reason is that I will be
briefly in London in April, and am curious to find if Ship Alley still
exists. I'm pretty sure that it has been redeveloped, but it did still exist
in the 1950's. It was a narrow alley somewhere in the East End, can't recall
where, and my Parents stayed there briefly with a Mrs Mazin on arrival from
Vienna in mid-1939.

As my hotel is near Liverpool Street, on the fringes of the East End. I
thought that I might try to find it.

Thank you for any pointers.

Searching for families of Rabbis Tanicki and Czarne, Ukraine #general

Lisa
 

Dear Group,

I am searching for the families of the following rabbis who were married to
two of the many daughters of Rabbi Yitzhak Avraham HAISSINSKY (GAISINSKY) of
Stavishche (Stavisht), Ukraine (1857-1942). The sons-in-law of Rabbi
Gaisinsky were most likely born between the years 1875-1890. Here is the
information >from 1912 that I have on them:

The first son-in-law was Rabbi Zelig TANICKI, son of Rabbi Aryeh, the kosher
butcher in Bogoslav, a respected merchant in Kharkov.

The second son-in-law was Rabbi Dov Ber CZARNE, Rabbi of Monasterzyce, son
of Rabbi Shlomo Fishel, who himself was also once the Rabbi of Monasterzyce.

I am trying to assist a few members of the families of the wives of these
two rabbis who were sisters to each other. We do not know the first names of
the wives.

There is a slight possiblity that one of these families may have immigrated
to England but we have no confirmation of this. It's possible that they
remained in Russia or may have immigrated to another country in later years.

Any leads would be appreciated!
Many thanks,
