Barry E Chernick
 

The Krasilov ShtetLinks web site has been recently updated
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Krasilov/index.html. If you have any
Krasilov related information let me know so we can add it to the site.
One picture, one sentence, or one paragraph, is enough, it does not have
to be fancy.

Does anyone recognize the people in this 1968 Bulawayo picture? #southafrica

Roy Ogus
 

I've posted a picture on ViewMate which shows a group of girls who celebrated their Bat Mitzvah in
the Bulawayo Synagogue in 1968. [Bulawayo is located in Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia).] Rabbi
Zwebner (shown at center in the picture) officiated at the Bat Mitzvah ceremony.

The direct link to the image can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19185

All the girls in the picture have been identified except for the 6th and 7th girls from
the left in the photo. Does anyone know the names of these two
remaining girls? Please reply directly to me.

Thanks.

Yichus of MaHaRaSHaL #rabbinic

Michael Waas
 

Hi SIG,

Could someone let me know what is the accepted Yichus of the
MaHaRaSHaL. In the little bit of access I have to the book on the
Lurias, there is a tree that states it is a reconstruction of the
family beginning with an ancestor Itzhak who was close to the Rashi.
What is the validity of this yichus? I am looking at its source
material >from sefer Ma'alot Hayuchasin and it seems to be the only
source for it.

I'd appreciate any discussion on this. I looked through the SIG's
archives and didn't find much discussion on the yichus of the
MaHaRaSHaL.

Best,

JGS, Inc. Meeting: Jewish Roots in Italy #sephardic

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Next JGSNY Meeting: Sunday, June 12, 2011 at 2:00

Topic: "The Tree of Life" - a film by Hava Volterra about tracing Jewish
roots in Italy (76 minutes)

Presentation: Alessandro Cassin, Deputy Director of Primo Levi Society,
will lead the discussion following the film screening. This is to be a
joint meeting of JGS, Inc. and the Primo Levi Society.

A personal family saga that illuminates the fascinating history of the
Jewish people in Italy, "The Tree Of Life" follows the Israeli-born director
Hava Volterra, an engineer in Los Angeles, as she struggles to come to terms
with her father's death by traveling to Italy, the land of his birth, to
trace the roots of his family tree. Beginning in the ancient Adriatic city
of Ancona, Volterra and her feisty 82-year old Aunt Viviana travel
extensively through Italy, digging up rare historical manuscripts,
interviewing an array of quirky historians, and discovering the astonishing
and humorous stories of their ancestors, including the da Volterra family of
bankers in Florence of the Medici; Ramhal, a Venetian rabbi and mystic
involved in the Kabbalah; renowned scientist and mathematician Vito
Volterra; New York City's legendary mayor Fiorello LaGuardia; and Luigi
Luzzatti, Italy's first Jewish prime minister. The film also includes the
poignant reunion of Viviana with the Italian family who sheltered her and
Ms. Volterra's father >from the Nazis during WWII.

This is a heartfelt personal story that celebrates the passion for life,
love, and family that unites both Jews and Italians, The Tree Of Life goes
beyond history to address how our families and their roots affect each
individual's sense of belonging, identity, and self-worth.

Members are free, guests $5.00 at the door

Location: Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th Street (between 5th and
6th Avenues), Manhattan.

The Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at CJH will be open before the
meeting starting at 11:00 a.m. for networking with other researchers and
access to research materials and computers.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2011 #sephardic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

So, May was a record breaking month for the Yizkor Book Project and, in
particular, for those of you whose eyes are turned in the direction of
Lithuanian communities, you might say it was "bonanza" month.

In addition, to adding a remarkable number of articles >from Pinkas Lita
(Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities, Lithuania), we also received the very
generous donation by Josef Rosin and Joel Alpert of the detailed community
articles appearing >from their book called "Protecting Our Litvak Heritage".
This month we've added in a number of communities and in coming months we
will continue with this endeavor.

This is not to say that other countries were badly neglected this month and
you'll see below that there were new additions >from Poland, Hungary,
Slovakia and the Ukraine. Of course, we also continued to update existing
projects that our dedicated coordinators continue to send in.

Now, if the book you are interested isn't yet online or the translation you
are after doesn't appear, perhaps you'd be interested in coordinating a
project to see that it does go online. No need to be frightened of this
challenge - I'm here providing Yizkor Book "coaching" services <g> and will
help you set up a project and see it become a reality. So, now I'm just
waiting for your message...

As far as the May figures go, during this last month we have added these 3

Sephardic SIG #Sephardim JGS, Inc. Meeting: Jewish Roots in Italy #sephardic

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Next JGSNY Meeting: Sunday, June 12, 2011 at 2:00

Topic: "The Tree of Life" - a film by Hava Volterra about tracing Jewish
roots in Italy (76 minutes)

Presentation: Alessandro Cassin, Deputy Director of Primo Levi Society,
will lead the discussion following the film screening. This is to be a
joint meeting of JGS, Inc. and the Primo Levi Society.

A personal family saga that illuminates the fascinating history of the
Jewish people in Italy, "The Tree Of Life" follows the Israeli-born director
Hava Volterra, an engineer in Los Angeles, as she struggles to come to terms
with her father's death by traveling to Italy, the land of his birth, to
trace the roots of his family tree. Beginning in the ancient Adriatic city
of Ancona, Volterra and her feisty 82-year old Aunt Viviana travel
extensively through Italy, digging up rare historical manuscripts,
interviewing an array of quirky historians, and discovering the astonishing
and humorous stories of their ancestors, including the da Volterra family of
bankers in Florence of the Medici; Ramhal, a Venetian rabbi and mystic
involved in the Kabbalah; renowned scientist and mathematician Vito
Volterra; New York City's legendary mayor Fiorello LaGuardia; and Luigi
Luzzatti, Italy's first Jewish prime minister. The film also includes the
poignant reunion of Viviana with the Italian family who sheltered her and
Ms. Volterra's father >from the Nazis during WWII.

This is a heartfelt personal story that celebrates the passion for life,
love, and family that unites both Jews and Italians, The Tree Of Life goes
beyond history to address how our families and their roots affect each
individual's sense of belonging, identity, and self-worth.

Members are free, guests $5.00 at the door

Location: Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th Street (between 5th and
6th Avenues), Manhattan.

The Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at CJH will be open before the
meeting starting at 11:00 a.m. for networking with other researchers and
access to research materials and computers.

Sephardic SIG #Sephardim Yizkor Book Project, May 2011 #sephardic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

So, May was a record breaking month for the Yizkor Book Project and, in
particular, for those of you whose eyes are turned in the direction of
Lithuanian communities, you might say it was "bonanza" month.

In addition, to adding a remarkable number of articles >from Pinkas Lita
(Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities, Lithuania), we also received the very
generous donation by Josef Rosin and Joel Alpert of the detailed community
articles appearing >from their book called "Protecting Our Litvak Heritage".
This month we've added in a number of communities and in coming months we
will continue with this endeavor.

This is not to say that other countries were badly neglected this month and
you'll see below that there were new additions >from Poland, Hungary,
Slovakia and the Ukraine. Of course, we also continued to update existing
projects that our dedicated coordinators continue to send in.

Now, if the book you are interested isn't yet online or the translation you
are after doesn't appear, perhaps you'd be interested in coordinating a
project to see that it does go online. No need to be frightened of this
challenge - I'm here providing Yizkor Book "coaching" services <g> and will
help you set up a project and see it become a reality. So, now I'm just
waiting for your message...

As far as the May figures go, during this last month we have added these 3
