Re: Novogrudok, Belarus Rabbis #belarus

Larry & Doris Phillips <ldphill@...>
 

My name is Larry Phillips and I live in Forest Ranch California. I read
your e-mail of July 18 and was very excited. However, my family comes from
Minsk, Belarus.

My g'father was Abraham Samuel RABINOVITCH. He was born in Minsk in May of
1883. His father was Samuel RABINOVITCH and his mother was Leah SHAPIRO.

According to family legend my g'fathers father or g'father was the Chief
Rabbi of Minsk. My g'father had two sisters who went to Switzerland to
study medicine and became one of the first women doctors in Russia.

My g'father came to New York around 1903. He and his cousin Max Samuel
HINDEN married sisters. My g'father married Mary EMEN and Max married
Rachel EMEN.

There is a tradition in the family that the Rabbi that was the Chief Rabbi
of Minsk was known as "Reb Tevele".

My g'father came to the US because he didn't want to become a Rabbi.

I do have pictures of my g'parents taken around 1914.

I am searching RABINOVITCH, EMEN, SHAPIRO, HINDEN/GINDEN and MELNICK

Sincerely,

Larry Phillips

Translators Needed, Vsia Rossiia #belarus

Members of the Belarus SIG have completed translating the names >from the
Minsk section of the 1903 edition of Vsia Rossiia, the Russian Business
Directory, as well as the names >from the Mogilev section of the 1911 edition.
The Minsk section can be searched on the JewishGen web site, we anticipate
posting the Mogilev names in the near future. We plan to proceed to the
translation of the names in the Minsk Guberniia, 1911 edition. Tranlsators
are needed, the original data is in clear typewritten Russian. I will mail a
copy of the Minsk Guberniia section to the translators, data can be submitted
on paper or on a floppy disk.

I hope that the translators that were so helpful with the previous sections
will again assist. New translators are also needed. Please respond to:

E-mail at LVIA? #lithuania

ira.goldstein@...
 

One of the items in the suggested request form to the LVIA is the
requester's e-mail address. Does this imply that the LVIA has e-mail
capability and, if so, is their address available to the public?
Best wishes,
Ira Goldstein
Apopka,FL
E-mail: <ira.goldstein@juno.com>

The reply is that individuals at LVIA have email, and they all have access to it. Questions or orders cannot be submitted by email however, and emails will usually go unanswered. The reason for including your email address is that communication with you, during the research process, might speed things up.

Re: Trip to Lithuania #general

Litvaks@...
 

Forwarded Message:

I want to thank David and Sonia Hoffman for their Lithuania trip notes. I
have been reading these reports with some interest because I think it is
important for Litvaks around the world to get a clearer picture of life in
Lithuania today.

Last year I lived in Lithuania for 7 months while working on an
environmental project for the Lithuanian Seimas (parliament). As the
legislation project had to do with coastal zone management, I lived in
Klaipeda - Lithuania's third largest city.

I am writing this letter because of an error in the Hoffman's message which
is too often repeated as fact:

<Finally there are the two functioning synagogues in Lithuania, the Vilnius
choral synagogue and the Kaunas choral synagogue.>

There are actually FOUR functioning synagogues in Lithuania. The two
mentioned above, the Chabad synagogue in Vilnius and the synagogue in
Klaipeda. (Actually, I was assured that during holidays there is even a
minyan in Sauliai and Panevezhys).

I bring this up for two reasons.
1) Jewish life in Lithuania is not (completely) dead.
2) The Jewish congregation of Klaipeda (as well as those in Sauliai,
Panevezhys, Jurbarkas and Plunge) unfortunately does not benefit >from the
exposure (or financial attention) that the congregations in Vilnius and
Kaunas do.

I urge anyone who is planning a visit to Lithuania to visit the community in
Klaipeda.

I realize that this is not a strictly genealogical posting, but if anyone
has any questions about (Jewish) life in Lithuania, please feel free to
e-mail me privately.

I have been enjoying very much the stories of your travels. I have had much success with the Kaunas regional archives - in fact they have told me about a previously unknown great-great-great-great-great grandfather Yudel Kreiger who, I surmise without knowing for sure, was born around 1738. They have also informed me of his previously unknown son Lieb and his previously unknown sons Moses and Tobuash. Godspeed on your journey.
