Re: Theodor HERZL's Hebrew name #general

Udi Cain
 

Michael Bernet, New York MBernet@... asked:

The founder of modern Zionism, Theodor HERZL, is known in Israel by his
Hebrew name, Binyamin Ze`ev.

Does anyone know whether that Hebrew name comes >from records or documents,
or whether the name was "imposed" on him, in his lifetime or after his
death.

There is no obvious connection between Theodor and Binyamin (or Ze'ev,
which is a kinnuy for Binyamin). Moreover, double-Hebrew names, such as
Binyamin Ze`ev, had long been out of fashion in Eastern Europe (Herzl was
born in Budapest, into a very assimilated family in 1860), and he would
likely have had the Yiddish kinnuy, Wolf, and perhaps a German name like
Wilhelm or Walter to go with the Wolf.

Does anyone know how the Binyamin Ze'ev name became known to us?

=If it is for any help:
*Theodor Herzel's maternal uncle was: Wilhelm Diamant.
*German was indeed the language that prevailed in Herzl's parental home
(not Yiddish).
*His mother sought to educate him in the spirit of the German-Jewish
"Enlightenment" of the period.
*Herzel's only grandson, the son of Herzel's daughter, Trude, was named
after him, Stephan Theodor Newman (changed his surname to Norman) 1918-1946.

Best regards,

PANKIEWICZ / PANKEVITCH roots #general

Omri Arnon <Omri@...>
 

My grandfather was Jacob PANKIEWICZ. He was born in Warszawa ( or maybe
moved there with his family >from a different town as a child).
Jacob's father Alter Meir PANKIEWICZ, was married to Chana ACKERMANN.
Jacob's Grandfather ( my GGF) was called Shmuel ( Szmul ? ) PANKIEWICZ.
My GF came to Israel/Palestine in 1905 or so, was one of the first settlers
in the Merhavia coperative, and afterwards brought both his parents from
Poland to Israel.

Does that ring a bell to anyone? I would appreciate any information about
the PANKIEWICZ family.

Thanks,

Again: Re. S.S. Roslan (and shipping records to Palestine:" #belarus

NFatouros@...
 

On August 2, 03, I wrote to this mail group to correct something I had
written earlier. I said it was not >from the Internet that I had found
information about the S.S. Roslan, but >from the first chapter of Martin Gilber's
biography of Nathan Sharansky.

My having made this mistake has troubled me. Was I embarking on the first
stage of senile dementia? Perhaps! But I prefer to attribute that mistake to
my having taken for the past three or so days some muscle relaxant pills and
some Valerian pills and quite a few aspirins. These may have addled my brain a
bit although they did not relieve my back pain much.

Early this morning I discovered that last week I had indeed found and
copied some Internet information about the S.S. Roslan in footnote no. 10 of the
text concerning the concert pianist and Zionist David Schor. Among other facts,
this footnote says that "the S.S. 'Roslan' sailed >from Odessa and arrived at
Jaffa at the end of 1919, with 630 immigrants aboard. See:

http://pluto.mscc.huji.ac.il/~msmtvv/d_schor.htm

Obviously this is the same S.S. Roslan which Gilbert said had borne to
Palestine 300 Russian immigrants including Natan Sharansky's uncle Shamai.

But I have been wondering whether "Roslan" could be the English
transliteration of the Hebrew or Yiddish spelling of "Russland." There was a
Norwegian ship called the S.S. Russland, according to:

http://www.norwayheritage.com/p_ship.asp?sh=rusla

but according to the information at this site, which is admittedly not
complete, the S.S. Russland was wrecked on Long Beach New Jersey in 1877. So this
rules out my idea that "Russland" could be a re-tranliteration of "Roslan."

I do not own any books about ships and at the present time I do not feel
well enough to go to a library and try to find out whether there was a ship
called the Roslan.
