Searching: ECKMAN - Detroit #general

Michael <mtrap@...>
 

Hi,

I'm searching for the ECKMAN family >from Vilna and later on >from Detroit.
Israel Eckman (son of Yakov Kopel and Sarah Tzitza EKMAN), and his wife,
Fannie, moved to the United States >from Vilna in the early 1900's.

They had three children:
1- Sophie (1906 born NJ - 1987 Detroit),
2- Esther Blossom (1906 NJ - 1987 Detroit),
3- Unknown son.

I'm not sure exactly when Sophie and Esther Blossom moved to Detroit, but
at at least >from the 1960's on they were both living there. They were in
their 60's at the time, both unmarried, and both were school teachers. The
last address I have for Sophie is 13137 Flanders Street. I'm not sure what
happened to the son or if he even lived in Detroit.

If anyone knows of this family, or can help me in locating my relatives I
would really appreciate it.

Thank you very much.

Thanks to the Bialystok Shtetl Co-op #poland

Willie46@...
 

My mother was born in Bialystok, but, (I'm sure you have heard this before) I
never asked her about her grandparents and other relatives before she passed
away. Since hers was the first generation to emigrate, I needed the LDS films
to help me trace my ancestry. To my great surprise, I easily found in the JRI-
Poland database dozens of records of people that are most likely my ancestors
and many new names to research. However, there are still gaps that remain to
connect these ancestors to me. The shtetl co-op has so much more that it can
do.

I volunteer to help with the data entry. But that is only one small way I can
and will participate. The most important contributions are by the dedicated
leadership of the Shtetl Co-op and the transliterators who have made the
researcher's task much less tedious and painful. However, there remain many
Bialystok films to be transliterated >from the Russian and the transliteration
of Cyrillic documents has a cost. They cannot be done without the monetary
support of all the researchers who are the beneficiaries. Therefore, I have
just written a check to JRI-Poland specifically directed to the Bialystok
Shtetl Co-op. And I challenge all other Bialystok researchers to do the same.

Sonia Hoffman, in her recent JewishGen post, pointed out that the Bialystok
records include references to families living in shtetls for miles around
(often those places for which there are no other sources of records). So now,
I should say "I challenge all other Bialystok and _vicinity_ researchers to do
the same!"

Additionally, for all you Americans, it was announced at the Los Angeles
Seminar that JRI-Poland has applied for tax exempt status, which, when
granted, will make your contribution tax deductible. In addition, if you work
for a philanthropic company, this contribution may qualify for Matching Gifts
status if your company has such a program. Find out how to contribute at

Re: mezuza on angle #general

Stephen Rabinowitz <srabinow@...>
 

The compromise between vertical and horizontal is one explanation for the
angle of the mezuzah. There is another explanation. Some say that the
mezuzah was placed vertically until the Crusades in Europe, when hostile
locals started painting crossbars on peoples' mezuzahs to form a cross. To
thwart this, mezuzahs were placed at an angle. This was not done in Islamic
countries. In Israel today, some have used this explanation to resume
placing their mezuzahs vertically, since they have no concern that anyone
will desecrate them.

There was a disagreement between the Sages as to whether the mezuza
should be placed horizontally or vertically. As a compromise, it was placed
on an angle.
It should also be noted that, contrary to what was stated in the original
posting, not all mezuzas are placed at an angle. This is an Ashkenazi
custom. The Sephardi tradition is to place them vertically.

ATTN: David & Shirley SHAPIRO-UC-SFO area #general

DREAME@...
 

Hi, JewishGenners, can you help?

We recently returned >from a riverboat cruise through
Ukraine and we were asked by JOSEPH SHAPIRO of Kanev, Ukraine, if
we would post a message to DAVID and SHIRLEY SHAPIRO of the San
Francisco area, whom someone may know, as David is connected with
the University of California and may be a member of JGS....

JOSEPH SHAPIRO was born Poldilskaya, November 12,
1921. He said that he WAS in touch David and Shirley Shapiro, and
then all letters stopped. He would very much like to connect with
them again. He mentioned an "agency - HARCO", but I have no idea
if it has any connection. I have a photograph of him and his full
address.

Email Shirley R. Rose directly :
