Naming a child Benjamin for Bendet #general

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

My great-grandfather's name was Bendet, which was used on his
children's tombstones as his Hebrew name. Would Benjamin be forbidden
as a name for a grandson, according to Ashkenazic naming customs? My
father's name was originally Benjamin but was changed within a few
weeks of his birth. His brother was named Benjamin a few years later,
which makes me think Benjamin was a forbidden name during the
grandfather's lifetime, and he must have died in the interim.

Brichany Jewish Cemetery #bessarabia

Dear researchers,

Happy Thanksgiving!

We have worked already on Brichany Jewish Cemetery and photographed and indexed all we could.
As I wrote in the cemetery report, there is a large section of the cemetery with no access to the graves.
You can see the photos of such section at Brichany Cemetery report:
https://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/files/cemetery/briceni/BriceniCemetery.pdf

Our Bessarabia SIG starting a Phase II project for the Brichany Jewish Cemetery. It will include
clearing paths to tombstones, removing trees, bushes, cleaning, and finally photographing the
rest of the tombstones.
Here is a description of this new project approved recently at JewishGen:
https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/projectdesc/DB_Briceni2.htm

I am asking you to donate to this important preservation Project of Jewish Heritage in Bessarabia:
https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=43 at this site
find Briceni, Moldova - Jewish Cemetery (Phase II) and donate.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

What was it like to make aliyah and find a new life in Eretz Israel?
Rivka Machneimy was a fiercely independent 17 year-old woman and kept a
detailed diary after she went against the advice of her father, Baruch
Hodorenko, a leading Zionist. "How will you earn a living when you have
never worked even one day?" her father asked. "I replied: 'There must be
other people like me and they are working...'" She writes, in the Yizkor
book of Bendery, Moldova of the daily work, struggles and hardships,
including the scourge of malaria that ravaged the settlers who sought to
transform the desert lands and swamps. She performed all sorts of labors
from kitchen work to learning how to drive a truck, and during her time
working in the fields proudly wrote in her diary: "After a few days I was
earning as much as the men." She had a child. This is her story.

Krapivinsky family (Mglin) #ukraine

lmandlawitz@...
 

I am looking for information about my grandfather Abraham Krapivinsky
(changed to Krapin in the US), born in Mglin (formerly in Chernigov
Gubernia, now part of Bryansk Province in Russia) between 1872-1875,
married my grandmother Lena Agranovitch (of Novozybkov) in 1900,
emigrated to the United States in 1904, and lived in Columbia,
South Carolina, and Richmond, Virginia. A family member, now
deceased, said that Abraham had a first marriage and child in
Mglin and started his second family in Novozybkov. I would like
somehow to confirm or refute this. I know of one brother (Michael)
and Abrahamâ??s parentsâ?? names (David HaLevi and Fannie Krapivinsky)
but nothing else. Recently I came across a record for a Salomon and
Rebeca Krapivinsky, who lived in Buenos Aires and had a son named
Aaron Merr. Aaron was born in 1911 in Buenos Aires, traveled to
Brazil and New York, and may be Avrohom Aaron Merr, who died in
1984 and is buried in Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. It is my
strong suspicion that these were members of my grandfather's family.
I am looking for anyone with any information about any of these people
or suggestions about how I can get information in Russia and/or
Argentina and Israel. Suggestions as to an archivist with access
to records in Mglin would be appreciated.
