Re: 19th Century Podolia - Sephardic Prayer book? #ukraine

<< Does anyone know if there were Sephardim, or Sephard-descended families in
southwestern Podolia? Apparently my family used a Sephardic prayer book in
Snitkov at least around 1900 to WW I years. >>

Michelle,

On one of the vusvus genealogy lists I discussed this question a while ago.
Either it was not the Ukrainian one or you missed it.

Because the Hasidim were held in low esteem they tended to use "nusach Sfard"
because it was held in high esteem.

Many times they would call their synagogues "Anshe Sfard." In the previous
discussion I mentioned that when I lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the
early sixties there was a synagogue in West Philadelphia on 60th Street that
used "nusach Sfard" with perfect Ashkenazic pronunciation. Someone else replied
that he knew of a synagogue in London where the same was true.

My uncle, Morris Halperin, (allow hashalom) claimed that there were a small
number of Sfardim who made their way to Eastern Europe but were not held in
high esteem because they were not as learned as the native Ashkenazim. He claimed
that they were attracted to the Hasidic movement which began shortly after
their arrival and that was another reason they used "nusach Sfard."

So Michelle, my question is, "Was your family Hasidic?"

Given name "Miszka" #belarus

Zalman Lachman, C.S.W. <zalman@...>
 

I want to suggest that depending on the Yiddiish dialect "Miszka" could be
the female name we might pronounce as "Mushka." The late Lubavitcher
Rebbe's wife was called "Chaya Mushka" for example.

This Tuesday evevening when I will be observint the holiday of Shavuos (oo)
my Chassidishe friends will be having Sheveeis (ee). Similarly, Miszka
could be Mushka.

I wish you success.

Genealogical resources in Hebrew #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

Dear friends,
We have just returned >from Ben Gurion University Library where we looked up
some information in a periodical published in Hebrew >from around 1917 to
around 1925. Called "Reshumot" in contains memoirs, reminiscenses, eye
witness reports of pogroms, etc. Another, even better, resource, is the
periodical "He-avar" (the English language table of contents transliterates
it as Heawar)
It was published by the Association for the Historical Study of Russian and
Ukrainian Jewry. Volume 21 has the index for volumes 1-20. The periodical
appeared irregularly until about 1976. Many volumes have abstracts in
English. The contents are straight history, book reviews, memoirs,
correspondence, biographies, etc. It is a treasurehouse!

son of Libe SAPHIR
My grgrandmother Süssel FEINGOLD ( wife of Dr. Osias Pariser) was born on

Osias Pariser and Süssel Feingold got married on the 11th of October 1896 in

Is there a way to look at the records without going to Brody?
Is there anyone who is able to look this up for me?
Many thanks for your help

Sorry I Haven't Answered Lots of Emails #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

Hi Belarus SIG Members,

I realize that many of you have sent me private email messages which I have
failed to answer. However, I am totally overwhelmed with SIG matters as
well as personal matters, as I prepare for my retirement. Please bear with
me. Hopefully, I will get caught up after I retire at the end of this month.

Thanks for your understanding.

Jerusalem Genealogy Conference - Belarus SIG #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

Dear SIG Members:

As many of you already know, I will be unable to attend the wonderful IAJGS
Jewish Genealogy Conference in Jerusalem in July. Personal family matters
make it impossible for me to travel outside of the US for the next six
months.

Martha Lev-Zion, one of the Conference organizers, informed me today that 96
people have signed up for the Belarus SIG meeting and 32 have signed up for
the Belarus SIG luncheon. Because I will not be at the Conference, I need
some volunteers to organize the luncheon program and the SIG meeting. If
you are attending the Conference and help out, please write to me via
private email. If someone does not come forward, I may have to ask Martha
to cancel both the SIG meeting and SIG luncheon.

Regards,

Dave

BERGMANN: Dittenheim #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

I have two questions concerning BERGMANN families,
which may (or may not) be connected.

QUESTION 1.
One of my ancestors Klara (Gluck) SELIGMANN (born 17
April 1807 in Ichenhausen) married Lazarus BERGMANN
(who was I believe born in 1800). It is recorded in
archives in Ichenhausen that the marriage took place
in Dittenheim ("verehelicht in Dittenheim"). On a
Stammbaum that I possess there is a note next to
Lazarus Bergmann's name which reads: "DITTENHEIM UFR
DANN ICHENHAUSEN".

Can anyone tell me the names of the parents of
Lazarus BERGMANN? Did he have any brothers or sisters?

[Any information about Bergmann families in Dittenheim
would be of interest to me.]

QUESTION 2.
Klara SELIGMANN, mentioned above, was the daughter of
Jakob Seligmann (1775-1843) of Ichenhausen and his
wife Gitl (or Gietel) who was born Bergmann(born 1780,
died in Ichenhausen in 1862). Was there a Gitl (or
Gietel) Bergmann in Dittenheim ? If so, who were her
parents, and was she related in any way to Lazarus, above?
