As Israel recently celebrated its 69th year, it's significant to note
that one of the articles added this past month to the Yizkor Book Project
was by David Ben Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister. The article
provides his youthful recollections of his hometown of Plonsk, Poland
and events in this community relating to the establishment of the Jewish
State.
The article by David Ben Gurion on his youth in Plonsk, at the beginning
of this book, is fascinating. However there is an issue that I would
like to ask about, that is not addressed at all in these recollections.
Friends of our, with the original surname SIPERSTEIN (or SAPERSTEIN),
say that they are relatives of ben Gurion's and that an uncle many
decades back had visited with ben Gurion in Israel, and that he (ben
Gurion) confirmed that his birth parents were, in fact, SIPERSTEIN, and
that he had been given to the GREEN family to prevent his forced
induction later on into the Russian army. Clearly, >from ben Gurion's
memoirs, his father was Avigdor GREEN, whom he loved dearly. So my
question is, has anyone on Jewishgen ever heard this story before? Since
ben Gurion had two older brothers, born nine and seven and a half years
before him, the SIPERSTEIN story doesn't seem to make sense, since the
GREENs were not a family with no children of their own. On the other
hand, if his oldest brother had been given to the GREEN family, which
apparently had governmental protection due to Avigdor's status as a
respected lawyer, maybe there is something here. Thanks in advance for
any assistance. Jeff Knisbacher

SHNIDER-SZNAJDER-KADISH #general

Dina Hill
 

Hello,

I am trying to help my friend research her paternal grandparents who
immigrated to New York >from Russian Poland in 1910. My friend's
grandparents were Harry Shnider (born 1880) and Annie Kadish (born
1884).

I know they immigrated to the USA (New York) in 1910, but I can't find
the actual immigration record.

I found them on the 1930 census with their children, but I'm trying to
find out who "their" siblings were which would lead me to Russia or
Poland.

For one, I'm sure Harry wasn't Harry in Russia. What Hebrew names or
Polish names would have translated to Harry??

What about Annie? What is your opinion?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Sincerely,

Dina Hill

Bacau Jewish School #romania

Marcel Glaskie <marcelg@...>
 

Bacau Jewish School
I have all the school registers >from 1893 to 1919 for boys and 1904 to 1915
for girls, for the F. Klein Jewish School in the City of Bacau Romania.
This is an absolute unique source of genealogical data, rarely explored
before.
I have discovered that a very large amount of the children who were enrolled
in the school were born in other towns around Romania, and even as far as
New York.
The registers contain, fascinating information to locate previously unknown
family data.

Re: Rabbenu Efraim b. Efraim Ha Gibor #rabbinic

tom
 

There is a Rabbi Ephraim of Regensburg in the Jewish Encyclopedia,
<http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/5797-ephraim-b-isaac-of-regensburg>,
of approximately the right time period. but his father was Isaac.
and his dates, 1110-1175 are a bit off, as well.

He could possibly be the great-grandfather, if his grandson was named
Ephraim just after his death in 1175, who then died young (25), leaving
behind a newborn to carry his name as Ephraim ben Ephraim.
