Dear Reba,

Here is the Hirlau shtetlink site:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/hirlau/hirlau.htm with much
information on Hirlau and a link to the Hirlau chapter in Pinkas
Hakellot Romania. I don't believe there is any other Yiskor book
for Hirlau.

Does anyone know if there is a Yizkor book or any other material written
(in English) about the Jewish community in the town of Harlau/Hirlau?

Thank you.

Yiddish Theatre #yiddish

I am seeking information about a Kiev Yiddish Theatre that performed in Czernowitz
in 1945. My parents met in the Yiddish Theatre in Czernowitz and married on May 8
1945. Is there a way to find out what theatre companies performed in Czernowitz
at that time? My father said it was the Kiev ... Yiddish Theatre. He was a stage
carpenter and my mother a performer/costumer.

Thank you.

Puerto Rico Scraps Previously Issued Birth Certs due to Idenity Theft Concerns #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The US Territory of Puerto Rico passed a law in January of this year that
went into effect immediately invalidating all previously issued Puerto Rican
birth certificates. New birth certificates will not be issued until July
2010 leaving those born in Puerto Rica in limbo if they need identification
to get driver's licenses etc.

Several states have already stopped accepting Puerto Rican birth
certificates for identity. This was enacted as the Puerto Rican legislature
believes that the birth certificates are a cause of identity theft based on
a report of fraudulent US passports issued using PR birth certificates.

About a year ago another article in the New York Daily News reported
7,000 public school children's birth certificates and Social Security
Numbers were stolen in PR by an identity-theft ring that catered to illegal
immigrants.

Sent: Thu, March 11, 2010 9:58:35 AM

"Does anyone know anything about the Halwojes Hames Burial Society,
which apparently only operated at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn?
This is the burial society that buried an infant Great Uncle of mine.
I'm guessing the name means something like "Haimish Halvayot???" Were
they connected with a particular area in Eastern Europe, or did they
just provide burials for poor Jews in general?"

Shalom Shoshana ,

I remember this name. It is Halvayas ha'Mes, like the Mitzvah. I
traced this to the Hebrew Free Burial Society which was no longer a
comporation and then to a lawyer who assumed responsiblity for them.
I think he pointed me to the Congregation Sons of Judah in Brooklyn
which is somehow connected. I spoke to the Rabbi there but he was
unaware of the connection. That is as far as I was able to go. Or at
least what I have found so far in my notes >from many years ago. If
you are interested I can send you the telephone number/address for
the lawyer and the Shul.

Shabbat Shalom,
