R' Matitiahu KALTER of Nowy Sacz #rabbinic

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I would be grateful if anyone with information about my relative, Rabbi
Matitiahu/Mates KALTER, who lived in Nowy Sacz before WWII and until his
death in 1942, would contact me. He was born in 1893 in Przemysl, was
married to Zisale WEINTRAUB, had two children, and may have owned a
hardware/tool store there.

Thanks very much and best regards,

Shuls named after Lithuanian Communities #lithuania

Martin Miller <millerm@...>
 

In Syracuse, New York there was Chevra Shas Anshei Lingmyan, which merged
with Congregation Beth Sholom. The successor institution is called
Congregation Beth Sholom-Chevra Shas. One of the members has done quite a
bit of research on the origin and history of Chevra Shas.

There is also Temple Adath Yeshurun, known to most generations as the
Naishtater Shul. The founding members were >from Naishtat (Kudirkos
Naumiestis), and many of them were related to us.

Two more South African synagogues named after their Lithuanian shtetlach
were both located in Johannesburg , namely :

The Ponevez Shul , which was located in Doornfontein, and was commonly
known as the "Chain Shul" because of the ornamental chain that surrounded
the building

The Poswol Shul which was located in the centre of Johannesburg city.
This beautiful shtiebel was restored and was declared a national monument
by the State in the early eighties.

Suplament to the surname BASCH #germany

Ury Link
 

Dear Genners,
I find today another explanation for the surname BASCH and I think that it
give us 1 explanation more. In the book" Vor und Familiennamen in Deutschen
Sprachgebiet", Konrad Kunze,Deutschen Taschenbuch Verlag,Munchen 1998, I
find in page 34 that the family name BASCH is derived >from the given name
Sebastian. He give this schema: Sebastian , Sebast , Seebass , Bast(ein)
, Ba(a)sch.

The origin of the name Sebastian is the Greek word Sebastos what mean a
person or a town that is sublime or exalted or august, and Sebastianus mean
the man >from Sebastia Augusta. In israel near Shechem is the old ruins of
Sebastia. The city name Sebastia is common in the antick world.
Of course I don't know what this name have to do with the Jewish family
name BASCH, but this is another explanation. Best regards

The first (and family) name "Gumpel" #germany

Zeev Raphael <zeevra@...>
 

Prof. G. L. Esterson wrote:

"... Thus, in general, one might find Gumpl connected to any of the
Hebrew names Efrayim, Mordechai, and Yaakov as a nickname,
and to the name Mordechai as a kinui.

The following is what Benzion C. Kaganoff ("A Dictionary of Jewish Names"
Schocken Books, NY, 1977) writes:

"GOMPERTZ. This comes >from the old German name Gundbert. Gumpert (Gompert) was
frequently added to the Hebrew names Ephraim and Mordecai as early as the
fourteenth century. It first appears as a family name at the end of the
sixteenth century. There are a number of variants of this name such as:
Gomperz, Gomperas, Kompert, Kumpert, Gumpertz, Gumprecht, Gumpel, Gimpel, Gimble."

Those of you who are interested in GUMPEL as a FAMILY name, may like to look up
the article "Die Hamburger Familie Gumpel, und der Dichter Heinrich Heine" by
Jacob (Jack) Raphael. The article appeared in the "Zeitschrift fuer die
Geschichte der Juden", Tel Aviv, No. 1/1969, page 33, and contains a fair amount
of family data relating to the GUMPELs.

For those interested, I would be prepared to discuss this article privately.

Abraham TIEKE, & Jimmy S. Sacramento, CA. callydude@... asked:

We are curious to see if members recognize these
names as common Jewish first names, and if they have a
Hebrew version or a similar spelling >from Europe.

Beryl, Enos, Verde, and Armanus.

= Beryl [male], the Yiddish variant for Bear, which is the English for the
Hebrew Dov. The originality is the honey loving animal Bear :-)
Enos [male] is the English for the Biblical name Enosh, which is the source
for Hebrew denotation for human being.
Verde. The closest Hebrew name is Varda [female], which is the Hebrew for Lily.
But the inflection Ve reminds me of a place in Senegal, Africa, Cape-Verde.
With regard to Armanus, which is not a Hebrew name and seems to be close to
Ermano [male] which is the Italian for Herman.

Best regards, Udi Cain, Israel <chaikin@...>
