From GLAZER to GOLOSCHOFF #belarus

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

After three year of searching and now thanks to Steve Morse's
onestep website for searching theEIDB, I have found a clue as to
why i cannot find my grandparents on soundex or EIDB records.

I located my granfather's brother-in-law, Barney JOSEPH, listed
as Baruch JOSILEWSKY coming >from Antwerp on the Mississippi,
arriving July 20, 1906 >from Kartuz Bereza
(I actually discovered it while viewing the
manifest at the NYPL on the 95th Anniversary of his arrival.

Baruch lists his brother-in-law as the person who paid his passage
and to whom to he is going as Dav. GOLOSCHOFF, 95 East 4th St.
New York City. I am almost positive that this person is my
grandfather David Halevi GLAZER or GLASSER as I have evidence
in the l910 US Census of him listed as David GLASER , at 80-83
East First Street along with his wife Libbi, 3 children and 3 boarders
--Ben JOSOLOFSKY, age 19, Minnie JOSOLOFSKY, age 20 and Asher
LEVY, age 23. I am sure that Ben JOSOLOFSKY, Baruch JOSILEWSKY
and my greatuncle Barney YOSSELOWITZ (changed to JOSEPH) are
one and the same person.

I now put out a call to anyone with this GOLOSCHOFF surname
from Kartuz Bereza, Pruzhany District, Grodno Gubernia, Belarus
and anywhere else. My father has taken a DNA Y male chromosome
test and we now have exact matches for family >from Belarus, Lithuania,
Hungary and Germany. So I am looking for various spellings of
GOLOSCHOFF. If it will help, David GOLOSCHOFF's father was Yitzhak Halevi.

Hoping to learn more >from anyone.

I haven't followed this thread, but there is a small tree on the Netziv in
the Volozhin Yizkor Book. A translation of the tree is on Jewishgen on the

WIEMAN--Dentist NYC #belarus

I am trying to find information on a relative of mine who was a dentist in
New York City. His name was Samuel WIEMAN, and he probably practiced
dentistry in the early part of the century. Any suggestions as to where I can
start a search? I only know his approximate year of birth. Thank you,

Re: "Scholar" = Rabbi? #rabbinic

geoffh@onwe.co.za <geoffh@...>
 

In response to the question raised by Ellie May Shufro, men who
devote the major part of their lives to studying and interpreting the
Torah, Talmud and Rabbinical writings were (still are) called
"yeshiva bokhers".

Leo Rostand, in his inimicable way, in his book Hooray for Yiddish,
describes a yeshiva bokher thus:

"...the Jewish communities of Eastern Europe lovingly supported
the 'yeshiva bokher'. It was considered a 'mitzve' to lodge and feed
him. The students were ascetic. Many lived on the edge of
starvation. They studied >from early morning till late at night. They
walked with eyes cast downward, to avoid worldly temptations. ...

....The 'yeshiva bokher' was much sought after by the parents of a
nubile girl. Large dowries often rewarded the students. The Talmud
tells the pious to "sell everything, if you must [to] marry your
daughter off to a scholar". "

Indeed, the married son of a friend of mine, having earned a
respectable and remunerative professional qualification, has now
become virtually a full-time yeshiva bokher in Israel, and I am told
that in spite of his reduced financial circumstances is more
blissfully contented than at any time in his life and is highly
respected in his community.

Being a scholar does not necessarily imply someone was a rabbi.
His resulting familiarity with Jewish law could have been used in any
number of capacities. For example, my father, a Chassid >from the
city of Lodz, Poland, told me that his parents (born in the 1860's) had a
similar arrangement. My grandfather "studied" (the Talmud, I assume)
all day while his wife ran a business, in addition to giving birth to
16 children. My grandfather was a member of the Beit Din, serving
as a juror and mediator, but was not a rabbi-- although his father was.

It was not unusual for this type of arrangement to exist or for a
scholar to be supported by a wealthy father-in-law so he would be
free to study.

Your great-uncle died in 1958, but SSDI records only starts as of 1962.
Yes, you will receive a photocopy of his SS-5 form, if you send $29.00

Yesterday I had a bit of luck seaching the EIDB and found the younger
Bessie listed as Baschie SCHER. Would I be correct in assuming that her
full Yiddish name was Basha?
