Converso children

ArnoldChamove@...
 

(1) If a woman is forced to convert from being Jewish [e.g., "converso" ] either (a) before or (b) after she has had children), can her children claim to be Jewish according to rabbinic interpretation?

(2) if a woman chooses to convert to Judaism either (a) before or (b) after she has children, can her children claim to be Jewish?

I would amend that to suggest that if the writer is replying to a digest post, they change the subject of the email appropriately to reference the specific post, not the digest in general.

(I have left the subject of this email unchanged as an example.)

Correction: Article on Dedication of the Memorial to the Yurburg, Lithuania Jewish Community #yizkorbooks

Joel Alpert
 

The dedication of the Synagogue Square Memorial was held on July 19,
2019. This memorial is to honor the former Jewish community of
Yurburg. It was initiated by the the town’s Christian mayor,
Skirmantas Mockevicius. He found David Zundelovitch, a renowned
Lithuanian-Israeli sculptor with family roots in the town, who along
with his daughter Anna and son Greg, executed the memorial on a site
near where the famous old wooden Yurburg Synagogue, built in the
1790s, once stood. The partners of this project include the Jurbarkas
regional municipality, CAN New Artists Collegium, the Litvak community
of Lithuania, the Friends of the Yurburg Jewish Cemetery and also many
private people.

This is a unique memorial in that it was initiated by a Lithuanian!
It is the first of its kind.

I don't know how late they go (probably depends on the court), but Family Search has US naturalization records from various courts as part of their unindexed collections. I believe you need the certificate number (you can double check the naturalization index records) and the court name/district. I found one from 1951 issued in the Eastern District of New York. 

Also, according to the Social Security website, noncitizens can have Social Security numbers.

A very touching story.  Seeing that you have some association with Yizkor books might be a subscriber to the sub-group

That being the case you may have seen my recent post titled  

A Book of Memory of the Jewish Community of Pinczow, Poland

I am looking for an English translation of the account on pages 210-212 in relation to
The Beitar and the Revisionist movements in Pinczow by Yechiel Kavshenyevski

Do you think that you may be able to assist me with that.

I think 'techec" just is a bad spelling of Czech.

Have you tried reaching out to the Panevezys Jewish Community?  https://www.lzb.lt/en/2012/02/27/jewish-community-of-panevezys/
 
In 2011 I traveled to Poland, Belarus, Lithuania and Moscow and we went to the school that now houses the Panevezys Jewish archives. You could try there.

What is her name?

jbonline1111@...
 

I have been researching my grandmother, Chana (Anna) Slonimsky for some time.  So far, I have not found any documents that clearly show her birth surname, which may be PASSIN or PASEIN, or some other variant.  She was married to Max (Mordche) SLONIMSKY about 1906 (no record found in NYC where they lived) and had three sons, Barnett (later Ben)1907, Philip, 1910 and my father, Louis (later Larry) 1917, whose surname is misspelled on his birth certificate as Slominsky.  She appears to have immigrated from Vilna and  after Max died, she remarried in the early 1920s to Yankel (Jake) MUSHKAT.  She died in 1927. My father said she had no USA relatives other than a cousin or two who immigrated here some time after she did.  Her father was Bernaig and her mother Fanny, nee KATZ.  

She should not be confused with my great aunt Annie (Slonimsky) Feinstein.

I have tried birth certificates, marriage certificates, death certificates, naturalization papers (she is on her second husband's papers), all to no avail.  Any suggestions would be grateful received. 

She should not be confused with my great aunt Annie (Slonimsky) Feinstein.
