R' Yoseph CHAVER of Jedwabne & descendants #rabbinic

srhlsr@...
 

My great-great grandfather's (Rabbi Aharon Shlomo Zalman KLEPFISZ,
Ob"m) brother, Avraham Meir KLEPFISZ, Ob"m married the daughter of
Rabbi Yoseph CHAVER, Ob"m; I don't know her name.

(Before I go on with my CHAVER inquiry, let me just add that
according to the Goworowo, Poland Yizkor Book, (Goworowo is where my
great-great grandfather Rabbi Aharon Shlomo Zalman KLEPFISZ, Ob"m
was rabbi), Avraham Meir KLEPFISZ, Ob"m, studied with Rabbi Yosef
Dov HaLevi Soloveichik, Ob"m, and the "Netziv", Ob"m, in the Yeshiva
of Volozhin, before being appointed rabbi in the city of Jablonka,
near Wysokie Mazowieckie.)

I also looked online at the Yizkor Book for Jablonka, called Nowy
Targ Yizkor Book. <http://yizkor.nypl.org/index.php?id=1970>; and
JewishGen's Nowy Targ Yizkor Book Translations, as well; I didn't
find KLEPFISZ, CHAVER, or KOTTON mentioned.

According to the Jedwabne Yizkor book (I looked online at
http://yizkor.nypl.org/index.php?id=1468 ), Rabbi Yoseph CHAVER,
Ob"m, was a son of Rabbi Yitzchak Eizik CHAVER, Ob"m.

I e-mailed JGFF researchers of CHAVER, and of KOTTON, which I was
told "came from"/replaced CHAVER.

I'd like very much to be in contact with descendants of the above
KLEPFISZ-CHAVER/KOTTON.

None of the CHAVER/KOTTON surname "researchers" that I've been in
contact with know re descendants of this couple; and/or the wife
(nee CHAVER)'s name;

I'd appreciate any help with this....

Thank you.

Belzer dynasty #rabbinic

Chaya minna sapirman
 

Dear All,

Would anyone know the birth and death date for Rabbi Shmuel (what is
his last name?) who was the Rov of Sokal and the brother-in-law to
Rabbi Yissocher Dov ROKEACH, the Rov of the Belzer dynasty in the
early 1900s?

Are there any books written about that community or a list of all
the Belzer Chassidim at that time?

Thank you so much.

A.A.Z HENDLISH author?/publisher? of 1837 book #rabbinic

Gilbert Hendlisz <hendlisz@...>
 

Hello,

Recently, I used the Google publication engine to look if something
may have been published by or about my family. I found a reference
about a book in Hebrew: "Sefer Torat Kohen: kolel shene halakim:
heklek rishon, yakhil bi'urim le-Midrash Rabah 'al ha Torah ve-likutim
'al Tanakh veagadot Razal be-Shas u-midrashim....." by Alekasander
Ziskind d. 1837; Symcha Bunem of Przysucha....and Avraham Aleksander
Zusha ben Ya'akov Yosef HENDLISZ.

The last name, Avram Zyse HENDLISZ refers to a cousin of my
grandfather who lived in Lodz and died there in 1939. Does anyone
know something about this book or have it ? I would like to know if
Avrom Zyse H. is somehow one of the authors of this book or the
publisher of it? I'd like to know also if the book contains any
genealogical information about this person.

Thanks in advance for any help.

travel to Germany - seek advice #germany

LJTRS@...
 

Hello,
I am planning a trip with my teenage daughter to Germany in June. She and I
are very interested in exploring the old family sites if they even still
exist. We want to go to Grossropperhausen, Marburg, Halsdorf, Erdmannrode,
Wehrda, then to Buchenwald, and Gera.

Do you know if there are still Jewish cemeteries in any of these towns?
I tried to figure things out and see that the distances are not too
bad (except for the trip to Schwerin). Can anybody tell me of a reliable,
safe person who can drive me around one or two days and get me to those towns?
Thank you!

Seeking Birth Certificate pre 1874 - Pankow #germany

Anne and Tim Muir <at.muir@...>
 

At the suggestion of a member, I have recently emailed Mit freundlichen
Grüßen
Standesamt Mitte von Berlin
Parochialstr. 3
10179 Berlin

requesting a Birth Certificate for:-

Herman N ULLMANN
Born on 11 May 1866
Born at 14 Dorfstrasse, Pankow by Berlin
Mother: Sarah ULLMANN
Father: Solomon ULLMANN

however it seems it is pre civil registration (at least that is my
understanding of the reply I received).

The above information was found in the Jewish Chronicle.

How would I go about finding a record of this birth? Thank you.

Anne Muir Queensland, Australia <at.muir@...>

MOD NOTE: "Mit freundlichen Grüßen" is a standard closing phrase used in
German letters. It means "with friendly greetings" and should not be
part of a mailing address.

This is not completely true. I believe the letter to the stars site is not

See for example the doew.at entry for "Otto Pohl".

I had sent the information about this relative to the doew site some years
ago and about a year ago he and some of the information about him was added
to the doew database.

But as you can see, Otto Pohl is not in the letter to the stars site.

Otto Pohl was a famous jounalist and socialist who worked together with Victor
Adler and also was a member of the Austrian delegation at the Versailles Treaty.
He committed suicide in the French Provence being chased by the Gestapo.

I have no idea how many victims or survivors you find in the doew site (and
there many might be missing too) are missing in the letter to the stars site.
So it might be better to always double-check the two databases.

the database without her permission."

Yes, I do appreciate that, but I took the opportunity to say that section
entitled "Datenbank Uberlebende" had been there for ages and to discuss the
updated structure of this website. I checked names of many survivors I know and
found only one two I knew >from my family tree, so far. Remember 70-80,000
Austrian Jews were murdered and about 100,000 survived.

Only about 2,500 names are on this survivors list. These are individuals who
are connected to people who have given permission [perhaps inadvertently by
attending the Jewish Welcome Service reunions?] for their names to be revealed.
If you go to Projekt: you will find the explanation in German and the welcome
service seems to be closely involved: Das Projekt Botschafter der Erinnerung

I have found a friend who has twice attended these reunions - I suspect he does
not know his name is there either. Others may hope fervently that someone will
enter their names and they will be discovered/found! I suspect in Eva's case,
someone gave her data in the course of such an interview/encounter/reunion and
never bothered to ask her if it was all right. Please note that surnames are
not given. You will not find Eva BROWNE listed, but if you enter a surname some
Uberlebende [survivors] may pop up.

For some, that would be great news - so look on the bright side. If you enter a
name like BAUER you get people who lived in a street which includes those
letters as well. So there is a chance for neighbours to find each other, by an
address search. If you put in common names like SCHLESINGER - nothing comes up;
ABELES brings up just one. So obviously this is not an official site taken
"lock stock and barrel" >from the National Fond data for restitution. The
Austrians anyway are paranoid about data protection and would never give out
names of living people. Even the vital records after 1904/5 have been removed
from the WienerStadt und Landesarchiv and the IKG cemetery database officially
blots out burial data after the mid-1940s.

However, if you have the name and date of birth of a person you are looking
for, do write to the National Fond and you might strike gold! They will not
put you in touch directly, but they will forward your letter. Then you have to
wait hopefully.

Judging how hard it is to find and extract anything >from this updated LTTS
website, I think Eva is unlikely to suffer >from her inclusion [anonymous] -
there may however be bonuses. It is not much different >from the POTs on yad
vashem; admittedly there the person has signed their name and written their
