Judy Brodkey
 

I would appreciate your help in reading a name on a birth record. The
parents of the baby's mother are Nuchim Wolf and a woman's name
we can't yet figure out. I tried to darken the image but we're still having
trouble deciphering it.

The image is on Viewmate at

Please respond via ViewMate.

Thank you very much.

Translation request: postcards in Yiddish #bessarabia

Patricia Klindienst <epk13@...>
 

Hello,

A fresh trove of family materials have surfaced with the death of an elder. These two postcards >from
a group of several appear to have been sent >from abroad. I would like a full translation of everything
on each card.

The first is a postcard that may have been sent >from Orgeyev, Bessarabia to Abram Spiwak in New
York City in 1910. I'm not sure what first name this person is using for Abram? it appears to be "Sam"?
If you see something else there, please comment.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66024

The second is a handwriting I think I recognize >from a branch of the family, but I have never before
seen the pyramid or odd numeral in the stamp box. A full translation of this Yiddish message would
be a great help. If anyone can comment on the stamp box, please do.

FW: Passover stories #bessarabia

Judite Orensztajn
 

Shalom to all my fellow genders!

Before telling my story, I would like to remind that the word SEDER means
order. (I apologize to those who already knew it.)

My story is not about my family, it's about a colleague in work here in
Israel. I'll call him Boris (this is not his real name), and he was a very sarcastic
Jew >from Leningrad, that immigrated to Israel in the 70'. He never got used
to the Israeli behavior, the noise, the lack of distance (that he considered
disrespect), and was very critical about everything in Israel. I think he
really missed the order, discipline and the Soviet way of life.

My story happened in the beginning of the 80's, just after my Aliyah from
Brazil, in 1978. Our boss in the Israeli Ministry of Education used to
gather all workers before each chag. A few days before Pessach, we had
another yeshiva chagigit (a festive meeting). Our boss liked to talk a lot - and
suddenly he turns to Boris and asks:
- Nu, Boris, etzlechem beLeningrad haia seder Pessach (did you have a seder
Pessach in Leningrad)?
This kind of question wasn't new? and Boris really didn't like it... so he
answered: SEDER KEN, PESSACH LO (Seder yes, Pessach no).
This is something I never forgot!

Chag sameach!
Judite
