Israel relatives - GUTMAN #general

Michael Weinstein <einstein1250@...>
 

I am trading to track down relatives in Israel with the surname Gutman
or Guzman. I recently found a listing in a 1965 phone directory for
uz Pessah butcher shop at ** Sheinken in Givatayim. Pessah was married
to a cousin named Laiku. Thy had two children. Yichael had married a
woman named Shifra (Sarah) and they lived in Givatayim with their
children. The second son David had lived in Ashquelon. Laiku's mother,
Haiku, was the older sister of my grandmother, Anna Goldman (Nee: Berg).
The family had emigrated to Israel in the late 1940s. Their shtetl town
was Ostrog, Russia, now Ukraine. If this information rings a bell to
anyone in the group, please contact me.

2019 JewishGen conference in Cleveland (4) #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hello everybody,

This is my last post about the conference.

Several members of our Bessarabia community worked at the Translation
table and were Mentors for others. Inna Vayner did a lot of mentoring
and helped translating records, documents. Also Alan Levine worked so
many hours at Translation table that at some point I had to take him
out almost by force to breathe fresh air and getting lunch.

This year I announced in advance to have at the conference personal
consultations with anyone who is interested in Bessarabia/Moldova and
who has questions, issues with their research. 10 people scheduled such
consultation, and several more asked for "walk-in" consultation in
Cleveland. I found it very helpful for everyone and hopefully we can
do more of it at the next conference.

For many people this conference is a place to learn new things. Right
at the conference we discovered the new face of JewishGen website.
That was really exiting. We all heard >from Avrami Groll about many
changes happening in our JewishGen Community, website, Discussion
groups, even my and all other SIG Leaders title changed, but I still
like the old one.

For me personally such conference is a place to see old friends and
colleagues. Usually we are communicating online, and it is always fun
after 2 or 5 years of working together on a project, finally see each
other...

I would like others who participated at the conference, send their
comments, and if you have photos.

We will update the Bessarabia SIG website with all presentations of
our members and photos >from you.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan

(Greece) 75th Anniversary of Jewish Deportation from Island of Rhodes #sephardic

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Island of Rhodes in the South Aegean, has an area known as "la Juderia"
the Jewish Quarter. It was in the Old Town for 2,300 years until July
23,1944. Jews of Rhodes were noted back in the Maccabean times in the
second century B.C.E. This year was the 75th anniversary of the deportation
to Auschwitz. The original Jews were the Romaniotes who were assimilated
into the Sephardic Jewish customs and language. Moment Magazine has an
article on this. Included in the article is a photograph of a plaque next to
the synagogue Kahal Shalom with the list of names of those who were
deported, such as Ventoiura, Nahamias, Beneviste and many others.
