This is a synopsis of an announcement in the newspapers in Israel.

Chevra Kadisha, Israel's burial society, has never known a recession,
which naturally makes sense, as death never takes a vacation.

Over the past few months, the burial society has invested significant
resources in upgrading its technological services, in the hopes of
helping those looking for a loved one's final resting place to find it
more easily.

"In the last couple of months we have developed an SMS grave-locator
system," Yossi Zrock, head of Chevra Kadisha IT Services, told Yedioth
Ahronoth.

"If, for example, you've arrived at a cemetery and you don't know
where the gravestone is, text the name of the deceased to *4664 and
directions will be sent to you within seconds."

Chevra Kadisha, he added, is currently developing a GPS grave-locater
system for mobile phones. "Such technologies are required for the
bigger cemeteries, like the one in Holon, which has over 220,000
graves. People can get lost."

Soon, Zrock promised, cemetery goers will be able to rent a PDA upon
arrival, for only NIS 20 (about $5.3). The device will lead them
directly to the desired gravestone and will allow them, en route, to
view photos of the deceased, read about his life and access the
required prayers.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine strippers #ukraine

A recent posting asking about the occupation "negotiator" prompts me
to ask a similar question.

All of the members of Samuel Shrybman's family who emigrated >from
Ukraine (Zhitomir) to Canada early in the 20th century, and resided in
Brockville, Ontario, are listed in Canada's 1911 census. The
occupation of one son is listed as "stripper". I'm not certain whether
this refers to work he was doing in Canada, or is a description of his
vocation in the Ukraine; I suspect it was the former. (I don't know of
any sawmill having been located in the Brockville area.)

I'd like to find out what this work entailed (especially since we
don't appear to have any other strippers in the family - at least none
who do it professionally).

(For those who enjoy hearing of others' small successes: it happens
that the Chamber of Commerce in Brockville, Ontario commissioned a
survey of local businesses in 1911, unrelated to the census. The COC
document gives the address of a storefront tailor shop on the main
street, and names Samuel Shrybman as the tailor. The census data
reveals that the (large) Shrybman family lived above that tailor shop.
The bonus is that the building still stands in the middle of charming
Brockville, and some newfound cousins and I were able to visit.)

Hello to the group,

Now that Yom Kippur is over, I am back to genealogy.
Does anyone have information about a rabbi called Ahron Aryeh Leib of
Dukor (or Dukora) in Belarus. He lived during the 18th century and was a
"talmid" of the maggid of Mezerich and also a friend or was somehow
associated to R' Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk. I have read somewhere that
he was the son of rabbi Moshe "Harif" of Druja.
Any information about his ancestry, family, descendance or something he
might have written or made would be welcomed.
