Town of Lipcani #general

Alan Weiser <alanboy@...>
 

I recently found out that my maternal grandfather lived at one time in
a town name Lipcani, Lipkany, or Lipkamya. All these spelling
variations appear for the same town listed as 128.8 miles N of
Chisinau in Moldova in Shtetlseekers on JewihGen. Information given
to me was this town was once in Romania, later Besarabia, and
eventually in Russia. I was also told the town name was Lipcan, but
this spelling did not show up in Shtetlseekers.

Can anyone verify the information about in which country the town was
and tie it to a timeline. I am most interested in knowing in which
country Lipcani was located in the period 1850-1900. Is it possible
there was a town known as Lipcan and located elsewhere.

Thank you for your help.

Kalmen Yuvelir and the Lexicon of the Yiddish Theatre #yiddish

David Harris <dorsharris@...>
 

Gene Warech asked for information about Kalmen YUVELIR. The 6 Volume
series "Lexicon of the Yiddish Theatre" by Zalman Zylberzweig appears to
have a write-up in volume 2 (column 909). Depending where Gene lives, the
book may be available on interlibrary loan. Copies exist at the New York
Public Library and the Library of Congress. Others exist at universities
with significant Jewish interests. The Lexicon concentrates on
contributions to the theater but some vital data (birth dates and
locations, deaths, etc.) can usually be found.

The Lexicon is written in Yiddish. Translation may be needed. Gene may be
interested that column 908 of volume 2 has material about Bella Yuvelir.
I assume there is a family relationship between the two.

R. Zorach Halevi HURWITZ #rabbinic

Milton S. GLassman <molar321@...>
 

I am researching my maternal grandfather's family. My grandfather,
Rabbi Zorach Halevi HURWITZ (orig. Gurewitz) the son of Menachem
Nachum Halevi HURWITZ (GUREWITZ),was born approx. 1862 in
Belarus(town unknown/mother unknown). He was a follower of the
Lubavitch movement. He married Chassia RABINOVITZ and lived in
Smolyane, Belarus 1890s-1906. He was a melamud and shochet in that
village and raised 6 children: Nathan, Abram, Golde, Sarah, Shlome
(Saul) and Mordechai (Max).

There may be a connection to a Nokhim GUREVICH (patronym Mordukh)
listed in the Kholopenichi 1834 revision list. But this name does
not indicate Halevi. I also have discovered that Lyakhovichi was an
important center for the Lubavitcher movement at this time and map
coordinates show these towns to be fairly close to each other.
Might there be some connection there? My grandfather came to
Worcester, Mass. as rabbi of the Sons of Jacob Synagogue in 1906,
and was a founder of Yeshiva Achei Temimim.. In 1944 he attended
the Lubavitcher conference in New York lead by R. Schneerson and was
honored to deliver a speech there. He died in 1944. He is listed
in the book, "Chachmei Yisroel of New England."

I thank you in advance any information or suggestions that may
assist my search.
