The Global Partisans' Song Project on South African National TV #lithuania

Eli Rabinowitz
 

This impressive 12 minute segment on the Global Partisans' Song
Project featured on SABC TV, South Africa's national television
network, last Sunday:

https://youtu.be/tnaCtuqVBgg

There are many Jewish educators around the world with connections to
either United Herzlia Schools in Cape Town or King David Schools in
Johannesburg.

Add to that the large percentage of Jewish South African migrants who
attended these two schools.

They must feel particularly proud of their Alma Maters that are engaging
Jewish students to stand up and be proud and knowledgeable of their
Jewish cultural heritage.

We must not forget the significant contribution of the teachers and many
students of the ORT schools in the FSU - the Former Soviet Union, who
have participated.
ORT schools in the FSU which have supported the program are in Russia,
Ukraine, Moldova, Lithuania and Estonia.

The most prominent Jewish person who attended Herzlia School in Cape =
Town is none other than the Chief Rabbi of the British Commonwealth, =
Ephraim Mirvis.

Re: Book on Jewish Belarus Genealogy #belarus

Andrei Burdenkov <andrei.burdenkov@...>
 

For Belarus genealogy basics:

an interview with a guy >from Minsk archives who tells about sources, ways
and terms of independent search. On my non-profit graves.by website
there are links to archives and online resources though in Belarus
many handy sources are offline.

Book on Jewish Belarus Genalogy #belarus

Marion Werle <werleme@...>
 

Yesterday there was a posting that erroneously suggested that Arlene
Beare's "A Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Latvia and Estonia" includes
Belarus. It does not. The book focuses on exactly what its title
states, namely Latvia and Estonia.

Hope that helps.

If you look at the location of Kriukai on the map

Re: Why is Susskind a kinnui for Alexander #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

Realising that I knew very little about Alexander the Great, and rising
to the challenge, I consulted a few text books about his life. I found
out that he married his second wife, a daughter of King Darius, at
Susa, a town in Iran, north of present-day Alexandria (which my Atlas
of Past times also calls Susiana) . So calling someone 'child of Susa'
could have the implication 'child of Alexander', inheriting his success
and nobility. Historically, I believe Susskinds were often prominent
members of their communities; publishers and magistrates spring to mind.

But I'm sorry to report, that I also suspect that the connection between
Alexander the Great and and the word 'Sus' lies in his growing belief,
also recorded in the Atlas, that he was a child of the Roman god Zeus.
That this won't be acceptable to many members of the discussion group
doesn't make it any less likely.

Quite separately, picking up on a previous post, any doting mother
can tell you that a happy child is a sweet child, though the etymology
here is admittedly pretty dodgy.

Thank you for post with links for Israel's Independence Day #germany

Deb
 

Hi,
Thank you for sending the post with links in honor of Israel's
Independence Day. I read Exodus in Jr. High on my own for free reading.
I hope to look through the other links as well. I viewed video of the
lighting ceremony but could only make out a few words- aliyah and olim,
etc. My Hebrew is not quite toddler level.

Shalom, Deb Albus, Fridley, MN, USA darnfloor42@...
