Suwalki Rabbi Naftali Frenzel and Rabbi Moshe Bh''r Yaakov Soloveytshik #rabbinic

Cynthia Gensheimer <cfg_spam@...>
 

Hello--
I would very much like to learn about Naftali Frenzel, who was a noted
rabbi in Suwalki and brother of my gg grandfather. The 1961 Suwalki
Yizker book stated that Naftali Frenzel died in Suwalk in kislev 1896
or 1897 and that his son-in-law was "Rabbi Moshe Bh''r Yaakov
Soloveytshik." Rabbi Soloveytshik died young, leaving a widow and seven
children. I would like to know whether there are living descendants of
that widow and whether anything is known of her lineage. Below are the
relevant excerpts >from the 1961 Suwalki Yizker Book as well as a
marriage record that may be relevant.

Page 120: "Rabbi Mosheh Bh"r Yaakov Soloveytshik, the son in law of the
"elder of the dayanim", Rabbi Naftali Frenzel, was active in community
affairs in Suwalk, and died in Getingen in 1896." ("Ha-Melits", 1896,
nr. 117.)
Page 161 "One of the most well-known rabbinical judges in Suwalk was
Rabbi Naftali Frenzel, who in his correspondences was always called
"the elder of the dayanim." He died on the eve of the 16th of [kislev]
1896 in Suwalk ("Ha-Melits", 1896, nr. 206)
Page 285: "In 1897 the dayan, Rabbi Naftali [Frenzel] died. Later,
Rabbi Binyamin Magnetsa [?] was chosen to take his place."

I found a record of a Suwalki marriage that seems as if it may be the
right one: Sora Dwera, daughter of Naftal ben Jankiel and Dobrusia
Golda, married Mowsza Solowejczyk, son of Jankiel ben Mowsza and Dwera
in 1887.

Thank you very much for any help. My father, who is 94, would love to
learn more about his father's uncle.

75th Anniversary of Rumbula Massacres #courland #latvia

The Rumbula Echo sent out a message to commemorate the massacres in Rumbula
75 years ago.

Commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Rumbula mass murders began
November 29 in Riga, Latvia. The ceremony took place at the killing site.
Latvia's president participated. The commemoration continued November 30
and included a candle lighting at Latvia's Freedom Monument.
The Rumbula Massacre took place November 30 and December 8, 1941.
May the memories of the 25,000 murdered at Rumbula be for a blessing.

http://www.rumbulasecho.org/

Rumbula's Echo is the first film and TV program focused on documenting the
Rumbula Forest murders of 25,000 killing more than a third of Latvia's Jews.

It is among the largest mass shootings of its kind in the Holocaust.

Wer einmal war, Georg Gaugusch #austria-czech

Traude Triebel
 

We have waited five years, with bated breath, for this to happen. And
finally, it's ready: on 24 November 2016, Volume II of Georg Gaugusch's
monumental work, Those Who Once Were. Vienna's Upper Class Jewish Society
1800-1938 (Wer einmal war. Das juedische Grossburgertum Wiens 1800-1938)
will be presented.
We first put together the Index of Names comprising far more than 34,000
documented personal identifications which we provide to you here
exclusively. In addition, all town names have also been included and
properly assigned. In pop-up information fields (for family name, first
name, page and town) all the indicated data can be viewed at a glance or
scrolled through, thus providing not only the advantage of gaining a quicker
and more comprehensive overview of the whole mass of data, but also helping
to avoid empty searches which bring up no results
