Yizkor Book Project, October 2013 #rabbinic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Busy, busy, busy is how I would describe the level of activity in the Yizkor
Book Project over the month of October. I am pleased to let you know that
over the last month no less than three projects were completed and I would
like to sincerely thank all of the people involved with them who saw these
projects through to their successful completion online. The projects are:

Halmeu, Romania (In memory of the communities of Halmin-Turcz and vicinity)
Slovakia (The Tragedy of Slovak Jewry in Slovakia)
Through Forests and Pathways

This means we now have around 90 projects that are online in their entirety
and quite a few have been published as part of our Yizkor Books in Print
Project and many others are in the process of being prepared for print. More
details of the books that are now available in print and others that are in
the works may be found at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

All the projects I note in my reports owe their existence to a considerable
number of volunteers (500+) and we endeavor to credit all of those who are
involved and have been involved in the YB Project over the years (>from 1994)
in the following list appearing at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ If you
have yet to become involved in our project and would like to take part in
the very gratifying experience of seeing these translations go online, I'd
be happy to hear >from you.

new projects:

Genners,

I believe there is a connection between the Feuerstein (Fiererstein)and Goldenberg
families. The List or Manifest of Alien Passengers US Immigration Officer arrival
documents show that Boruch and Selig Goldenberg and Taube Feurerstain/Chaji Floch,
Gude Floch, and Mariam Floch traveled on the Nieu Amsterdam >from Rotterdam to New
York on June 1, 1909.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Skole Ukraine #general

Stuart Ungar <stuartungar@...>
 

Hi all,

Interested in getting some advise here. I've been thinking of traveling to Skole
(Ukraine) with my daughter (she's 11). The town is my maternal grandmother's
birthplace.

My initial plan was to go to Hungary then travel to Skole. But our Hungarian guide
cautioned me about the long waits at the border and poor roads. Also wondering if
it's safe for us.

Any thoughts about how we could make it a rewarding genealogical trip, but also fun
and safe for two Americans who can't converse in their language. And would flying
into that area and then going to Hungary make more sense? Do we need Visas?

We are planning the trip for April (early Bat Mitzvah present) so thoughts and
group wisdom greatly appreciated!

ZACKHEIM in Pinsk (and/or Karlin) #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to my grandmother's uncle,(Chaim Dov KANTOR of Karlin and
Zichron Yacov, Israel) in his diary, he mentions that the head of the
religious court in Karlin-around the middle of the 19th cent. was a
Rav Mordechai Ruzhiner , who was a "she'ar basar" (Hebrew for
relative). I presume that Ruzhiner was not his family name but his
place of origin. I am trying to identify this Rabbi and research this
mentioned family connection.

One of the rabbis who served in Karlin (or was it Pinsk) was R'
Mordechai ZACKHEIM who I understand came >from or also served at some
point in Ruzhin. (I know that there are two places with very similar
names Ruzhin and Raseinai. In my uncle's diary and other sources its
mentioned that Mordechai ZACKHEIM came >from Ruzhin.

If anyone is knowledgeable of the above Mordechai ZACKHEIM's how we
may be related. I've already tried through George ZACKHIEIM in
Chicago and saw his "Scattered Seeds" without having too much luck in
trying to make a family connection..

I received >from someone on this forum a family tree which mentions a
Rabbi Mordechai Leib (without a family name) who was the son-in-law
of R' Shmuel Avigdor (a.k.a. "Tana Tosfa'ah") one of the Rabbis of
Karlin during the first half of the 19th cent. If anyone knows details
about this Mordechai, his family name and if he did serve in Karlin
and if so when, I would be happy to hear about it.

An additional question: does anyone know if Mordechai ZACKHEIM (the
above) was related somehow to the Volozhin family?

I know the above is a "hodge-podge" of fact etc. but if someone can
fit the puzzles and help me make a connection I would appreciate it
greatly.

Rabbi Mordechai Leib (without a family name) who was the son-in-law
of R' Shmuel Avigdor (a.k.a. "Tana Tosfa'ah") one of the Rabbis of
Karlin during the first half of the 19th cent. If anyone knows details
about this Mordechai, his family name and if he did serve in Karlin
and if so when, I would be happy to hear about it.

An additional question: does anyone know if Mordechai ZACKHEIM (the
above) was related somehow to the Volozhin family?

I know the above is a "hodge-podge" of fact etc. but if someone can
fit the puzzles and help me make a connection I would appreciate it
greatly.
