Chaim Freedman's book on the descendants of the Gaon of Vilna #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

Does anyone living in the Jerusalem area have Chaim Freedman's book
"Eliyahu's Roots"?

If so I would appreciate if could skim through it.

I know its at the National Library (its hard for me to get there during
visiting hours.

Thank you,

Yoni Ben-Ari, Efrat


Which Ostrah did my ancestor come from #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

In my family's handwritten yichus page it is written that my
ggggrandfather, Israel ROSENBAUM lived in Ostrah and was a talmid (follower)
of Reb' Yehoshua Heschel of Apta.

The above Israel was a son (or son-in-law) of a Reb' Yosef (Rav ?) of
Breznica who was a son (probably son-in-law) of Shmuel , Rav of Kremenetz
and a descendant of both the Maharal (through Reb Naftali KATZ-Smichas
Chachomim) and the Maharshal (through the KLAUSNER family).

My questions:

Can anyone suggest , >from the above information which Ostrah he was >from as
I've seen several Ostrah's refered to.

Do the above names fit into any other member of this group. I've been in
touch with the group reseaching the KLAUSNERs but their information on my
branch (children of the above Shmuel) comes >from me and I would appreciate
other corraborating sources.

Thank you and Shabbat Shalom

Kesher Israel Synagogue, 4th & Lombard Sts., Philadelphia - Zagare #general

Harry D. Boonin <hdboonin@...>
 

A number of years ago I found a hand-written address book of about 200 names
of the members of a synagogue in Philadelphia, Congregation Kesher Israel.
It was (and still is) located at 4th & Lombard Streets. The phone book is
from the 1920s and 1930s. The synagogue was founded in 1894 by Jews from
Eastern Europe. Founders of the synagogue were mostly >from Zagare, but from
other places also (places I cannot identify). The phone book does not state
where a person came from.
I posted this information on jewishgen three years ago, and received 9
responses. Generally, I was not able to provide much helpful information to
those who corresponded with me, and they were not able to help me learn much
about the membership of the shul during those years. But we all tried.
Since three years have passed, I thought I would try again. I would be
happy to answer any inquirers about the membership. I have learned much
more about the membership in the intervening three years, but I guess it is
still looking for a needle in a haystack. For the majority of the members,
I still know only the names and addresses that are in the book. For others,
I have a bit more information. For a few members, I have learned a lot.

R' Yakov EMDEN / Chacham Zvi genealogy #rabbinic

Dubin, David M. MD
 

A tradition in part of our family is that Rabbi Yakov EMDEN's
daughter married Rabbi Binyamin EISENSTADT, my 7ggf. Does anyone
know of a full-blown ancestor tree of his or his father (the Chacham
Zvi)? I have assembled a lot of info on his ancestors >from the Atlas
Etz Chaim and family lore, but I may be leaving a lot out.

Thank you.

The story told to me by my mother was that the SABEL family in Lithuania
(possible Rietavas or vicinity) wanted to avoid recruitment. Therefore half
of the brothers changed their surname to KATZ and the other half did not do
so. The KATZ siblings went to USA while the SABELs stayed in Lithuania and
Latvia. Unfortunately I have no idea how to find anyone of that lost branch.

Re: Blocking Genners Responses #general

Dear Genners,

I agree with Peter Zavon's analysis:

"Some people get more spam than others, or are more bothered by it.
These are systems designed to ensure that a live person is sending an
individual message. Don't take it personally, because it's not just to
annoy you..... "

I had used a moderate setting until two weeks ago, when I received a call
from a fellow genner saying that he was unable to send some important
information to me because my box was full. When I checked, I was chagrinned
to find that during a several day absence, spam had filled my inbox. As an
experiment, I have had the spam setting on high for the past two weeks. As a
result, no spam has entered my inbox. I have plenty of memory for important
communications. During that period, >1100 spam messages went directly into a
spam folder. I received a number of messages which my ISP refers to as suspect,
of which most were spam. I read the few that were legitimate and promptly
responded, placing these correspondents in my address book.

Please take a few seconds to complete the form when you first contact a
Genner. As members of Jewish Gen, we are conveying keen interest in hearing
from each other. Having a spam blocker is not offensive if we are understanding
of each other. We don't need to be dissuaded >from helping each other by a tech
inconvenience.

Thanks for considering this point of view.

Best Regards,
Susan Goldsmith
