Looking for family of Mrs Millie LANDIS of Sydney #general

GRAHAM LEWIS
 

Dear All

I have a cutting >from the Jewish Telegraph newspaper of Manchester >from June
1954 which speaks about a Mrs Mille LANDIS of Sydney, Australia.

Mrs LANDIS was apparently the aunt of Mrs Eva LEWIS (nee GOLDBERG), wife of
Solomon LEWIS (of Manchester and Preston, Lancashire).

The article says that Mrs LANDIS:

- travelled to Manchester in 1927 and again in 1954;

- was a Synagogue Delegate to the Council of Jewish Women in Sydney;

- was born in London in approx 1900, the daughter of a Chazan;

- left for Australia in 1914 with her father, mother and 9 siblings;

- had a husband who died in abt 1953

Solomon and Eva LEWIS were my grandparents, but I had never heard of Mrs
LANDIS until I came across this clipping, and I never knew of an Australian
family connection. I do not know what Mrs LANDIS's maiden name was.

I'd be most grateful if anyone has any information about this lady and her
family.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Best wishes

New York BOF Meeting 2006 - Bert Levy #yiddish

Phil Lipshut
 

Dear YT & V Members

Members with long memories may remember my attendance at the YT & V BOF
Meeting at the 2006 Conference in New York.

I was then, and still am today, researching my great uncle, Bert Levy. Bert
was born in Australia in 1880. In the early 20th Century, he took his
vaudeville act to the USA, where he was a huge success. He also enjoyed great
success in Europe.

He was an illustrator. His illustrations were projected on to a large screen,
for the audience to see. Apparently, Bert whistled through his act.

One of my objectives in visiting New York was to research Bert.

At the BOF Meeting it was suggested that I visit the New York Public Library
Performing Arts Collection at the Lincoln Centre.

I only had a few hours to spend there. I could have spent 2 weeks there, as I
was directed to a manilla folder stuffed full of original press cuttings about
Bert Levy. There were hundreds of cuttings, many so brittle that they fell
apart when you tried to open them.

A belated thank you to those who suggested that I visit there.

On my way back to Australia, I stopped over in Los Angeles. Again, acting on
advice received at the BOF Meeting, I visited the Library of the Academy of
Motion Pictures, to enquire about the only movie in which Bert Levy appeared,
(at the request of Cecil B De Mille), the 1928 silent movie, Chicago.

To my disappointment, I was advised that there had been a special screening of
a restored version of Chicago, with jazz-band accompaniment, just 3 days
before I was there.

You win some and you lose some!

Thanks again! Keep up the good work in this SIG!

Warm regards

Thanks Jane for all your trouble I actually supplied Zvi with most of that

Hi Walter

I do have information on Isabella (known as Tizzie) Jacob Levenston born 1
January 1872 in Dublin. I got the information >from Zvi Silver who is a
Levenston descendent and an expert on the family. My great Aunt was
briefly
married to Michael Levenston a theatre impresario who was >from the Glasgow
branch of the family.

I will forward this e-mail to him and ask him to contact you as I am just
about to go on holiday for a week. If you don't hear anything let me
know
as Zvi has very poor eyesight and may need help reading his e-mails. He is
always very keen to help.

Again, briefly, Benjamin was born 1 March 1869 in Sunderland, County
Durham
(son of David Davis and Ethel May Humphreys) whose occupation was Draper
and
Jeweller. He died on April 1946 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Benjamin and Isabella were married on 21 August 1890 in Dublin Register
office. I have all the children listed and most were born in either the
England (Liverpool) or Ireland (Cork). If I get a chance later I'll scan
the relevant pages of the tree. I can find no mention of South Africa.

I understand BENJAMIN's family moved to SOUTH AFRICA in the late 1800's

remained there .Benjamin and Isabella had a family of nine and I
understand
that an equal number of children ,some having similar names existed in

Any information to anable me to fill in missing facts on my Grandfather

<< I was always told that the sephardim and the ashkenazim
did not marry. While this is certainly a thing of the past today, what
were the practices in England in the early 1800s?

==Always avoid saying "always." During the last year there was a long
article in a prominent New York magazine (I can't recall if it was New
York Times Magazine or The New Yorker) about the Syrian-Jewish community
in Brooklyn, which emphasized the abhorrence in that community against
marrying an Ashkenazi.

==Israel Zangwill's hilarious "King of Schnorrers" deals with the brouhaha in
London surrounding the marriage of a Sefardi daughter and an Ashkenazi,
around the year 1800. Get an originally illustrated copy if you can.

==In 1951, I sought the help of the Bevis Marks congregation in London, the
central authority of Britain's Sefardi community, to issue a letter saying
that I was planning to wed my Israeli girlfriend at their synagogue. She had
been conscripted into the Israeli army and I was pining for her in England.

==I was called to Bevis Marks where I underwent a grilling that was a virtual
repeat of the travails in "King of Schnorrers." The conference room, with
its chairs, drapes and portraits was exactly as I had seen it a century and a
half earlier, and I was grilled by the same officials (some still wearing the
original clothes, so I could have sworn), and the language was identical.

==First I was thoroughly scolded for having initially directed my request to
the London Beth Din. My foolish explanation that I thought one Beth Din should
be enough for all the Jews of England produced apoplexy.

==Eventually, we reached a feint or faint compromise. I had to sign a document
(Probably in Spanish or Portuguese--I didn't have the opportunity to read it)
in which I swore never ever to request, demand or expect any help >from the
community for myself or my children, nor any dowry for my bride. I was told
we would have to go to a branch synagogue in Maida Vale because mixed
marriages are never permitted at Bevis Marks.

==The marriage was great and successful. It produced two lovely children
whom I love and of whom I am very proud, and it lasted for all of five years.
We got divorced in Israel at a Bet Din which had both Sefardi and Ashkenazi
judges, and when I remarried (an Ashkenazi woman) in Eilat, a cousin of the
Sefardi judge officiated at the wedding. He, (like his relative the judge,
and like the ancestors of my first wife, and like the community in Brooklyn)
were alldescended >from the powerful Sefardi community of Aleppo (Haleb) in
northern Syria, close to the Turkish border, who really were Sefardim,
descendants of the community driven out of Spain into the Ottoman empire
in 1492.

==My German-Jewish mother said of my bride (with a tight mouth) "Well! at
least she's Jewish." I heard no other demurrers or put-downs. I guess that,
whatever may be in the hearts of community stalwarts, the barriers
between Sephardi and Ashkenazi Jews have been breached, at least in Israel
where similar barriers against Jews of darker colors are also vanishing.
