Detroit Cemetery Look-ups #general

Vivian308@...
 

Is there anyone in Detroit who can get to Workman's Circle
and Machpelah cemeteries and either take photos,
or read the Hebrew inscriptions for me?
I have the Section, Lot, and Grave numbers.
The cemetery caretaker was helpful when I first
contacted her in September, and told me that she
would send photos, but I have never received them,
and I haven't been able to reach her since then.

Please contact me privately and I will
give you the information.

Thank you very much for your help.

Dear List,

I'm hoping that someone on the list who speaks Hebrew could help me

a pogrom in Dusetos, Lithuania in 1905. The photo is located here:

Re: New York Jewish Press #rabbinic

Larry Tauber <Ltauber@...>
 

Dear RavSiggers:

Since I haven't received any objections, I will continue with my
weekly report on the Jewish Press Machberes column for those who don't
have access to it. This week's column reports on the passing of Rabbi
Aaron Zvi LANDAU (1927-2003), the Veretzkyer Rav of Flatbush. Rabbi
LANDAU, who was born in Veretksy, Hungary, was the son of Rabbi
Yechezkel Shraga LANDAU (1902-1907), son of Rabbi Yitzchak Mayer, who
died in the Holocaust in 1944), a rabbinical court judge in Yassin and
Neitra. Rabbi Yechezkel Shraga LANDAU married his cousin, Chaya
Dreizel LANDAU (1905-1984), the daughter of Rabbi Shalom Noah LANDAU.
Rabbi Shalom Noah LANDAU and Rabbi Yitzchak Mayer LANDAU were the sons
of Rabbi Moshe Dov LANDAU (d. 1899).

Rabbi Aaron Zvi Landau married Shprintza, the daughter of Rabbi
Yechiel Mechel BRANDWEIN (1871-1939), the Turka-Streitiner rebbe. He
was the son of Rabbi Aaron BRANDWEIN (1842-1906), a student of the
Ruzhiner rebbe, Rabbi Yisrael FRIEDMAN, and son of Rabbi Zvi Aryeh
BRANDWEIN (d. 1883 Safed). A number of the members of the BRANDWEIN
family are mentioned in Neil Rosenstein's "The Unbroken Chain."

The chain of Torah did not end with the passing of Rabbi LANDAU. His
children include: Rabbi Yitzchak Mayer LANDAU, Rabbi Yechiel LANDAU,
Frumi BLEIER, who married Rabbi Binyamin BLEIER, Tzurel, who married
Rabbi Yitzchak BROWN, Leah, who married Rabbi Aryeh WALD, and the new
Verektsky rebbe, Rabbi Shalom Noah, who married Esther, the daughter
of Rabbi Mordechai Dov TWERSKI (1925-1998), son of Yaakov Yisrael
TWERSKI (1898-1973). I believe that this branch of the TWERSKI family
is also covered in "The Unbroken Chain" and is distantly related to
the Skverer rebbe mentioned last week.

May Rabbi LANDAU's memory be a blessing for all of Israel.

I received a private inquiry regarding last week's column as to
information concerning the town of Skvira. If you have any thoughts,
please e-mailto:Ljbisel@aol.com

In addition to the Machberes column, this Week's Jewish Presss contains
a full page history of the Jews of Ireland, listing the name of several
rabbis, Jewish lord mayors, and community leaders. There is also a
weekly column on Poland (entitled Po-Lin) which this weeks recounts the
history of the Jewish community of Chelm.

To think some people I know say they only get the Jewish Press for the
ads! (This paper should really pay me an advertising fee).

Shabbat Shalom.

restoration of Joniskis synagogues #lithuania

Joe M <joe-mankowitz@...>
 

My daughter & I had a most rewarding trip to Joniskis in September. We
uncovered the grave of my paternal grandfather, Michal Mankovich, & were
hosted on an informative tour of Jewish Joniskis by members of the Town
Council (this agricultural town has a population of 12,000).

We cannot praise the town Hall officials highly enough for the hospitality & the information that they were able to pass on to us. They also gave us a fascinating essay / dissertation by a local schoolteacher on the history of the Jews in Joniskis & Zagare regions. A translation of this document

We also found out there is a project underway to restore the Joniskis synagogues. More details can be found at <http://www.litjews.org/> . I'm not sure how to proceed with this, so will be guided by the response I receive to this email

Seek information from Offenbach #germany

Susan Edel
 

Does anyone know where I can find out about the Jewish community of
Offenbach in Germany? Which archives would have the information?

Many Thanks, Susan EDEL, Petach Tikva, Israel

A NOTE >from THE MODERATOR (a former teacher of writing)

I spent a few hours today with my mother (84) listening to her exchange
nostalgic campus annecdotes with college classmates.

Maybe that's why I quickly recalled the voices of my teachers at the same
school when I read Susan's brief (points for that, anyway) message.

1. Please don't make us guess what help you would like >from us. I'll
assume that you are looking for birth, mar. and death records but
you don't say that. It would cost but a few keystrokes to tell exactly
what "information" you need.

2. The town finder (Shtetl Seeker) at JewishGen lists 4 German towns named
Offenbach and one Offnbach.

That excellent tool at <http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/> will
quickly tell you the map coordinates and distance >from Berlin of all
five. A mouse click on the coordinates ( eg. 4812 0812 )
of any town will produce a map of the district which shold help you
decide if it is the right Bach. (With so many of them, it's easy
to become confused.)

Sorry, Susan. My mother made me do it. (She was an English teacher too.)

Net Captures Lost World of Shtetl - Witness to a Jewish Century #general

There is an article today in Wired News

titled "Net Captures Lost World of Shtetl", referred to Centropa and its
project "Witness to a Jewish Century" .

Centropa is the Central Europe Center for Research and Documentation, and
the project is described as unearthing invaluable records of once-thriving
Jewish communities, the main source of information and photographs being
elderly Jews.
