We are pleased to announce the translation to English of three additional
chapters >from the Radzyn Podlaski Yizkor Book:

1. The unbroken chain: by Mordechai Tannenbaum.
The history and importance of the &#8216;Blue Thread&#8217; for the Radzyner Chassidim,
the attempts to produce it again after the end of World War II and how this
was finally accomplished in Israel.

2. Teachers, whips and youth: by Zanvil Zaltzstein. The author describes
early childhood education in a Cheder in Radzyn.

3. >from those days: by M. Ben Shmuel. A description of life in the Chassidic
community in the time of Reb Mordecai Yosef the Radzyner Rabbi, relationship
with Chassidim who came >from other towns to be near the Rabbi and the
changes that eventually came about .

KANTOROVITZ and/or SCHATZ descendants of the Gaon of Vilna #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I recently posted a message regarding a supposed link to the family of Reb'
Chaim of Volozhin. I mentioned there that we have a rather superficial and
questionable family tradition of a family link to the Gaon of Vilna which I
would like to check.

I should say that I've perused Chaim Friedman's "Eliayahu's Branches" and
have corresponded with him.

In the same very skimpy family chart which I mentioned previously there is
scribbled a link to the Gaon through my KANTOR(OVITZ) lineage. And from
another side but on the same chart appears the name SCHATZ.

Interestingly, both names appear as descendants of the Gaon but both names
are pretty common since again by strange coincidence they mean Cantor or
Shaliach Tzibur. As to the KANTOR side we are not sure if it is KANTOR or
KANTOROVITZ (as appear in Friedman's book). Two sibbling of previous
generations have documents each written differently.

As to SCHATZ we know that my ggggrandfather YOSEPH was a Chazan (cantor) in
Pinsk but we are not sure if this was his family name also or just his
profession and that we never had his real family name-if he had one
(beginning 19th cent. in Pinsk).
His daughter (my gggrandmother was Sarah Hinde).

Our KANTOR(OVITZ) ancestors are >from Slonim. My ggggrandfather was SHLOMO
ben ELIEZER (possibly a Rosh Yeshiva in Karlin)(and RACHEL) ben YAACOV MOSHE
ben AVRAHAM.
I've explored this line before in this group and received replies that
there were two lineages in Slonim with the same names of fathers and sons so
that there could be a mistake on our family chart presuming that we were
from the Gaon.
Shana Tova, Ktiva ve'chatima tova to all. May we all be blessed with a
Happy and Healthy New Year.

I have relatives >from Druya, Belarus. This was once part of Lithuania,
Vilna gubernya. It also borders with Latvia, and I dont think it was ever
part of latvia, but some of my relatives called themselves Latvians. I
would assume it was because either they originated >from over the border,
or they did so much travel and commerce within Latvia, that they figured
they were Latvians. I don't know enough about thehistory and ethnicity
of that region (north western Belarus) to know for sure.

Hello,

Is Brest Litovsk considered part of Lithuania? My grandfather always
considered himself a Litvak but I am seeing it as part of Belarus. I
have a question about his family >from Brest Litovsk. His last name
was Ruran which is rather unusual for a Jewish person. They were
very religious so I have no doubt that they were Jewish. His mother's
maiden name was Londinsky (also >from Brest) and she immigrated to the
US in around 1924. I know a lot about her family but have hit a wall
on him. Nobody in the family knows his father's family at all. Can
anyone tell me how to proceed with finding anything on him?

I know his father had died in Brest and his name was Benjamin David
Ruran but can find no documentation on him at all. I have looked
through all the Jewish Gen things available. I can't find any birth,
marriages or deaths with the name Ruran to prove he even existed!

Thank you.
