theater company located in Washington, DC, founded to present works that
"celebrate the distinctive urban voice and social vision that are part

Theaters in DC are dark in August, so we have brought a highlight of the
Theater J season to our conference hotel for conference attendees to
enjoy. In an attempt to maintain the feel of the home stage
performances, seating will be limited to 400. Tickets are $12 each.

The Moscows of Nantucket
By Sam Forman
This witty, smart, multigenerational family comedy, with moments of
poignant self-revelation and awareness, takes place on a summer weekend
at the parental home in Nantucket. Watch the fur fly as brothers play
out old family dramas, mixed with contemporary angst, passion fueled by
booze, compulsive Blackberry checking and disclosed secrets. Sam
Forman's previous play was Helen Hayes Award-nominated, "The Rise and
Fall of Annie Hall."

You will be able to purchase the tickets on the DC2011 registration web
site soon.

Hope to see you there.

Re: KaZ--abbreviation for a title SITE CITE #germany

Andreas Schwab <andreas.schwab@...>
 

Christine Crawford-Oppenheimer asked:

"Am I correct in guessing that the author of the book misunderstood
the "surname", and that "KaZ" is probably actually an abbreviation of
a (religious?) title?"

I quote >from Beit Hatfutsot
http://www.bh.org.il/database-articles.aspx?55484
"Sometimes family names were created by using acronyms or anagrams of
Hebrew words. Thus, the name's sound and spelling was changed,
transforming it into a European name while keeping the original
meaning: Katz, which is a Hebrew acronym of Cohen Zedek ("rightful
priest") (kaf-gershayim-tzadi) means "cat" in German. "

Searching for Isidor WINTER Kopcany #hungary

danielat1@...
 

My great grandfather Isidor (Yitzhak) WINTER was born in Kopcany a small
town near the current Czech border with Slovakia in 1839.
I have so far been unable to find out the names of his parents or indeed any
siblings.
I wonder if anyone else in the Hungary SIG is researching Kopcany and would
be able to share information?
