To clarify, the Adar leap year is 7 times in 19 years, not anything as
regular as once in four years (that's the English calendar).

One should remember that Adar Alef and Adar Bet occur only once in 4
years.
So if you know the YEAR you can find if that was a "leap year" or not.
Maybe the whole question will be solved if you find that the specific
year was NOT a leap year,
and there is one one Adar month in that year.

"Where the hell is 'Schwinglasse' and 'Schnatta'?"
The impact of local dialects, Yiddish and Hebrew on Family Names
and Place Names.

More information on Mr. Purin is at the Conference website:
www.philly2009.org/e_pop_profiles.cfm?session=1&session_id=120338&class_id=118162

=============
Last week the Jewish Museum Munich opened its new exhibition "Places of Exile
03: Munich and Washington Heights". The third exhibition in the series
"Places of Exile" provides an insight into the New York neighbourhood of
Washington Heights, which during the 1930s became a center of German Jewish
Immigration.

Here, immigrants >from southern Germany, together with Rabbi Dr. Leo Baerwald,
last rabbi of Munich's main synagogue destroyed in 1938, founded congregation
"Beth Hillel".

The exhibition "Munich and Washington Heights" presents this New York
immigrant neighbourhood and traces the history of the congregation
Beth Hillel and its members.

Philly2009 - Banquet Announcement #lithuania

David Mink
 

We are delighted to announce that the entertainment for the Philly2009
Banquet will be Yisrael Campbell -- widely regarded as a premiere
standup comedian in Israel -- he's an original and erudite comedian
who has lived in Jerusalem and now lives in New York City. However,
the journey that led Yisrael to The Holy Land began a long time ago
in a place far, far away: he actually was born "Christopher Campbell,"
raised Catholic, and grew up in Philadelphia. For more about Yisrael,
see his website at www.yisraelcampbell.com or check under "program" at
www.philly2009.org

Yisrael will certainly entertain us ---laughing will be a wonderful
way to end the very hectic conference week. We are lucky that he has
agreed to be with us. This is a banquet you will not want to miss!
It will take place on Thursday, August 6.

If you have already registered, and want to add 1 or more banquet
tickets to your registration, please go to the conference website,
www.philly2009.org and click on "Registration Update." You will need
the login and password you received when you registered. Once you are
logged in, click on "optional program" at the left.... you will then
see all the possible optional programs and can select those you want.
You may bring a guest who is not registered for the conference to the
banquet.

If you have not registered, please do so now and sign up for optional
programs while there is still space. You may check on-site to see if
any tickets are still available for different optional programs ( but
you may not be able to obtain what you want if they are all gone).

See you there!

Galicia Towns #poland

EEllman@...
 

I am trying to pinpoint where my great grandparents, Oscar STERN
and Fradel (SZRENZIL) STERN are from. The information I have shows
that in 1871 they lived in Narajow, in 1877 they lived in Piniaki,
and in the 1880s and 1890s they lived in Rykow and Narajow.
According to JewishGen, these towns have multiple combinations
of possibilities. I assume they are all not too far >from each
other, but I am having a hard timing pinning down the correct
towns. Any suggestions?
