I don't know where the orphange was located but the family
had a small store located near the original Levi Strauss
Pants factory in San Francisco. Has anyone heard of this
orphange or can point me in the right direction

Actually, I believe Edgewood was the Protestant Orphanage. Homewood
Terrace was the Jewish orphanage. It was in the hills above Ocean Avenue,
as I remember. If you put the two phrases "homewood terrace" "san
francisco" into a good search engine, you will find several sites with
good information about the orphanage.

Sons of Israel of Yonkers NY #general

Joan Silverman <jbsilverman@...>
 

Hi,
I am researching my ggfather David GOLDBERG
and I believe he may have been a founding father
of the Independent Sons of Israel of Yonkers, New
York in 1915(?). I believe they are still in existance.
Does anyone know if they will respond
to written requests for information?

Thank you for your help.

There was an Edgewood Children's Home in San Francisco, but it was not a
Jewish orphanage. Established in 1851, it was also known as the San
Francisco Protestant Orphanage. In 1979, it was still located at 1801
Vincente St., San Francisco, 94116, and involved in casework and
psychiatric services. They might still possibly be at that location.

The only large Jewish orphanage in operation in that time frame was the
Pacific Hebrew Orphan Asylum located in 1891 at 436 O'Farrell. In 1999
they found missing records and books going back to 1870.

Hope this helps!!!

More guidance - Pinkas Hakehilot #yizkorbooks

Beverly <bev7@...>
 

In my translating I have come across mention of bands of marauders in 1920,
called Patlora, or Fatlora, or..., or....

I have entered every variant I can think of to the Google search engine, and
come up with nothing. Anybody know what these bands were actually called?
Else I'll just have to call them "Patlora Bands". If the reference cannot
be found anywhere, it will be pretty useless information.

In Hebrew the word is written
Peh, Tet, Lamed, Vav, Resh, Heh.

Hope someone can help.

Re: "Poles and the Jews" - NY Times Article #general

Tilford Bartman <bartmant@...>
 

Pamela Weisberger wrote:

In today's New York Times (Saturday, March 17th) there is an excellent
article by Adam Michnik entitled: "Poles and the Jews: How deep the
Guilt?", which is a response to the upcoming book by Jan T. Gross,
"Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne,"
which has been previously referred to (and recommended) in this
discussion forum. The book deals with the July 10, 1941 mass murder
of the entire Jewish population of the village of Jedwabne by their
Polish neighbors. I highly recommend reading this insightful article,
which also explores the anti-Semitic traditions deeply rooted in
Poland. If one can't obtain the NY Times locally, it can be
accessed through their website, www.nytimes.com.

I just want to say that I read this article by Adam Michnik this
morning. It is quite thoughtful and very well worth reading. His points
about the "Polish paradox"(that in Poland one could be an anti-semite, a
hero of the resistance, and a savior of Jews), and about the post war
Polish self-image formed amid Stalinist terror without an opportunity
for open public reflection on the events of the war, are particularly
important for Jews to understand. I will also say that his article is in
my opinion not without some flaws.
