Re: Question about Levite descent #poland

Susan Tait Porcaro <suetaitporcaro@...>
 

Thank you to everyone who has responded to my query about Levite descent. It
seems to be the consensus that it is passed down >from father to son, so
technically, my husband has the blood of the tribe of Levy in him, but is
not considered a Levite since it is his mother's side, etc.
some people say Reb is merely a title like Mister, some say it denotes a
learned man.
thank you for all this feedback. I appreciate it! :)

In honor of Jewish Records Indexing Poland's 10th anniversary, "The
Galitzianer," the quarterly publication of Gesher Galicia, is devoting a
major portion of our summer issue to "success stories" involving JRI-Poland,

If you've used their remarkable indexes make inroads in your family trees or
towns of origin...ordered records >from Polish archives, or used these
indexes to locate missing ancestors in Family History Center
microfilms...please send us your stories!

Try to keep these anecdotes short...a few paragraphs will be fine unless its
a very involved story. Include as much detail as possible, with a
beginning, middle and end. If you want to send a JPEG image of the record(s)
that lead you to your success...or an old photograph or map that ties into
your story, please do.

Take your time to produce the finished product, as we won't be able to
rewrite it for you. Even a sentence or two of your successes...the road you
traveled to knock down a brick wall....what this enormous undertaking by
Stan Diamond & company has meant to you...will help make this tribute
as successful as your stories.

Please send your copy, if possible, in a Word document, directly to:

pweisberger@hotmail.com

Due date: July 13th (but sooner will be better) And remember--only
Galician research, please!

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.

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

Does anyone know how Vilna is listed? Is it under Poland in their
