Yizkor Book Project, February 2013 #yizkorbooks

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
II)
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume
VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Now to facts and figures for February, during this last month we have added
these 6 new projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book)
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Ekaterinoslav/Ekaterinoslav.html

Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
II)
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume
VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Now to facts and figures for February, during this last month we have added
these 6 new projects:

Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
II)
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume
VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Now to facts and figures for February, during this last month we have added
these 6 new projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book)

"A Town Without a Rabbi Cannot Exist" - online exhibition of historical rabbinic photos, biographies & architectural drawings from the Warsaw Archives #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

Genners...you are in for a treat!

I just discovered an online version of an open-air exhibit created by
the State Archive of the Capital City of Warsaw that was presented in
Warsaw last September called: "A Town Without a Rabbi Cannot Exist:
rabbis, assistant rabbis and rabbinic candidates in the Warsaw
Governorate in the years 1888-1912."

Now offered as a PDF file, there are over 150 photos, and details on
56 individuals >from the Archive collections of rabbis and rabbinic
candidates in the towns in the former Warsaw Gubernia which was in
charge of the certification of rabbis. Many of them gained recognition
in the country and abroad as administrators of Jewish communities
and spiritual leaders. The photos were discovered attached to
application forms for the rabbinic exams. Many of the rabbis
represented were born in the 1840s - 1860s. Included are detailed
biographies of these men, including the place of birth and burial,
names of the parents, relatives, yearly salary and religious texts
authored. There are also architectural plans for synagogues and
mikvahs in some of the communities where they lived. You can see
photographic studio scenes and details like wax seals and stamps,
but it is the haunted and spiritual expressions in these priceless
photos that are the most moving.

As indicated in the first pages of notes on the exhibit, the researchers
made use of vital records in a variety of Polish archives and
repositories and the Jewish Historical Institute. It is a fine example of
combining genealogical data with historical collections to form a
meaningful exhibition. Also interesting to note that the record
collection this exhibit is drawn >from -- the Department VI of religion
of the Faculty of Administration of the Governorate Government of
Warsaw -- was evacuated to Moscow in 1915, came back in the 1920s
to the Central Archives of Historical Records in Warsaw, then The State
Archive of the City of Warsaw and since 2006 in its Milanowek branch.
(Note: some Galician towns are represented.)

The title of the exhibition comes >from one such application to the
gubernia authorities written by the Jewish community in Staszow, in
which reasons for the necessity of choosing a new rabbi in the town
were stated.

Here is the link:
http://w.warszawa.ap.gov.pl/images/aktualne2012/PROJEKTRABINI03_09LEKKI.pdf

It's a large file and may take a while to fully download but well worth
the wait. If anyone finds a relative here...please share that information
with the group.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2013 #belarus

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
II)
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume
VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Now to facts and figures for February, during this last month we have added
these 6 new projects:

I'd like to express my gratitude publicly to Pamela for alerting us to this
amazing exhibit. My ancestors weren't rabbis but they came >from the town of
Kaluszyn and I have so many documents of theirs signed by the town's rabbi,
Szmul Kopel KLIGSBERG, that I almost feel I knew him. It was quite
fascinating for me to see a photo of the rabbi and put a face to the name!

All of you might care to note too that even if you don't have any rabbinical
ancestors, there is a lot of other information in this exhibit, including
the names of non-rabbinical relatives and brief histories of many towns.
Well worth checking out. Thanks again, Pamela.

Szmul Kopel KLIGSBERG, that I almost feel I knew him. It was quite
fascinating for me to see a photo of the rabbi and put a face to the name!

All of you might care to note too that even if you don't have any rabbinical
ancestors, there is a lot of other information in this exhibit, including
the names of non-rabbinical relatives and brief histories of many towns.
Well worth checking out. Thanks again, Pamela.

All the best,

Raanana, Israel.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Yizkor Book Project, February 2013 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
II)
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume
VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Now to facts and figures for February, during this last month we have added

Book Cite: Czechs, Germans, Jews? #austria-czech

HOLIJOLI@...
 

I have European relatives who tried to explain to me the situation when
their grandparents, changed their surname >from ABELES to AREND. Changing
their family name, they followed the joint will of their parents, who were
afraid of antisemitism and possible professional disadvantages and business
discrimination. One brother remained a German-speaker and was regarded as a
staro Tschech (old-fashioned). His younger brother thought of himself as
more modern and thus more disposed to Czech rather than German language and
attitude. He would joke to his older brother, "Gestern Nacht ist der lieber
Gott in Prag 7 a 'Mladotschèch' geworden." (Last night in Prague 7 the dear
God became a modern Czech!)
