Re: Kiddush goblet inscription - Rekitza or Kittsee? #general

It's a common way of writing the abbreviation "lifrat qatan", with reference to
the date (in which the millenium is omitted). It seems to be repeated a second
time, though, for some reason.

A final question I have relates to the the inscription's last letter
(last line, last letter on the left). It seems to be a "Qof". But it is
not part of the date. Does anyone have an idea what it means?

Polish passports #general

Dear Zev:

If your family member used a Polish passport in 1931 to make aliyah to
Mandate Palestine, there is a chance that information about that passport
might be found in the Aliyah Passport File in the JRI-Poland database.

Nearly 4,000 special Polish passports used to travel in the 1930s to Mandate
Palestine and returned to the Polish Consulate were later turned over to the
Jewish Historical Institute (JHI) in Warsaw. They were indexed under the
aegis of the Ronald Lauder Genealogy Project at the JHI for the JRI-Poland
database.

Go to www.jri-poland.org and click on "Search Database" Enter the surname
you are seeking and search the entire database, with no geographical
restrictions. In the search results, scroll down to "JHI Passport Data" If
the passport you seek is in the file, you will find the listing there.

To order a copy of the passport, scroll down to below the search results
for contact information and find "JHI Passport File". Click on the link that
will take you to an information page and order form so you can order a copy
directly through the Lauder Project at the JHI.

Is there a way to find out information about an old 1931 Polish passport?

Druzhkopol Cemetery Restoration Project #general

Gary Gershfield <gmgkpc@...>
 

It is with my sincere pleasure to announce the completion of the Cemetery
Restoration Project of the former town of Druzhkopol,located in the Volhynia
gubernia in present day Ukraine.

The project was completed by a group of Dartmouth College students,along with
their Rabbi Edward Boraz,who is the coordinator of Project Preservation.

I accompanied the Dartmouth group to the former Druzhkopol(present day
Zhuravniki).The site of the Jewish cemetery had been practically bare
with only 2 visible tomstones.After the construction began,approximately 21
tombstones were discovered.

A fence and gate was put up at the cemetery,as well as,at the Mass Grave. We had
a beautiful dedication ceremony and banquet with the local residents including
school officials,and the local priest and mayor.

I would like to extend special thanks to Rabbi Edward Boraz and the students for
making this event happen.

Dear Beverley

Thank you so much for alerting the Group, and me in particular, to this
excellent website. Thanks to you I have found the headstone of my great
uncle Joseph Simmons although it was wrongly attributed to a Joseph Shimons.
I had found out >from another great uncle's will that Joseph had died in
Salisbury, as it was then, but had no idea how to access any more
information. The photographs of all the headstones were amazingly good and
it was such a delight to find them in such good condition. I now look
forward to looking at the site in more depth.

Thanks again
