Dear All,

I noticed that Katie used the Reply to: geshergalicia@comcast.net instead of

The geshergalicia@comcast.net email address is the one I use for GG
communication (as coordinator). It comes only to me. It is also the GG email
address we have registered on PayPal.com.

I am happy to hear >from anyone regarding Gesher Galicia at
geshergalicia@comcast.net.

If you wish to post a message to the Galicia list, please send it to
galicia@lyris.jewishgen.org.

Thank you.

20th of Sivan/Pogroms #general

Caryl Simon-Katler <csimon@...>
 

I thought it might be of interest to mention that the 20th of Sivan, which
begins tonight June 26 and lasts until sundown tomorrow, is a day which most of
our relatives who lived in eastern Europe would have commemorated with a fast and
the reading of yizkorbooks. It initially began following the first ritual murder
accusation in Europe, in Blois, France in 1171. Thirty-two Jews died, rather than
accept baptism. Yhe day of their burning was declared a perpetual fast.
Interestingly, the Chmielnicki massacres some of which took place on the 20th of
Sivan in 1648 were also commemorated by this same fast. The Megillat 'Efah or
Scroll of Terror, an account of these Cossack massacres in which at least 100,000
Jews were murdered, was read and many old selichos >from 1171 recited. These
customs were observed throughout eastern Europe up to the eve of World War II.
Even if we no longer follow the custom, I think it's worthwhile to remember its
significance for our families, who were coping with the ever-present threat of
pogroms for centuries. The 20th of Sivan was their way of memorializing the
thousands of victims claimed by these pogroms.

R' Gaon Shlomo-Zalman ben Faivish ben Melech MARGOLIS GORDON #rabbinic

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Rabbi Gaon Shlomo-Zalman ben Faivish ben Melech MARGOLIS GORDON,
1853-1933, Rabbi of the Karmelitai shul outside Kovna for fifty-two
years and one of the three rabbis on the Kovna Beit Din, passed away
in 1933. He was supposedly >from at least eight generations of
rabbis. In his family, all of the brothers, for the most part, took
different last names to avoid conscription. Rachel Margolis, the
director of the Jewish Museum in Vilnius, is a member of this
family.

Upon Rabbi MARGOLIS GORDON's passing, Rabbi MAST, Chief Rabbi B.
SAPIRO, Kovno, Rabbi ROZENSON and Rabbi MANTSER eulogised him, as
well as many others. His family in the United States received many
condolence letters in Yiddish >from the leading rabbis >from around
the world which they still have.

Some of these were:

Chief Rabbi B. SAPIRO, Kaunas, Lithuania

Rabbi A. DRUSKOWITZ, Kaunas, Lithuania

Chief Rabbi Solomon E. JAFFE, Beth Hamedrash Hagodol, 207 E. Broadway, NY,
NY, and Rabbi Elias JAFFE, Assistant Rabbi, Beth Hamedrash Hagodol

Rabbi T. GEFFEN, 284 E. Hunter Street, Atlanta, GA

Rabbi Naftali-Zvi RIFF, Rabbi of Camden, NJ.

Hope this is of interest. Anyone familiar with the MARGOLIS or MARGOLIS

Mormon repositories #lithuania

In a couple of months I'll be heading to Minnesota for 3 months and

Does anyone know how Vilna is listed? Is it under Poland in their
materials, or Lithuania or Russia?

Thanks

HI:

I am new to JRI Poland, having never posted a message before. Here goes ...

My family comes >from Chorzele and Przasnysz in Pultusk gibernia. My family
names are Bruksztejn (Brookstein), Berent & and Szpirka, and Feder.

Chaim & Hinda Brukzstejn had a daughter, Lea, who married Itzak Katz who
in turn had a son, Shimon. While looking through some of the messages,
I came accross a message posted by David Shapiro regarding a Shimon Katz.
When I inquired if he was related to Shimon Katz, he replied that he must
have been responding to a question >from someone. I am hoping that the person
who asked David the question will respond to me.
